Afghan national army soldiers from the 6th Kandak and Soldiers from the 2nd Battalion, 1st Infantry Regiment, search a room in a village compound Oct. 24 in the Maywand District. "The ANA and the [Afghan national police] are much better suited [than American Soldiers] to knowing what is normal within this culture and what is not," said Lt. Col. Jeffrey French, battalion commander and San Antonio, Texas, native. Task Force Legion has been participating in combined missions with the ANA as part of the 5th Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 2nd Infantry Division's campaign in the Kandahar province.
