Capt. Matt Quiggle, Alpha Troop commander with the 8th Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, rehearses the operation sequence with Capt. Muhammad Zahir, a company commander in the Afghan National Army's 6th Kandak, outside a village compound Oct. 24 in the Maywand District. "Without the ANA ... it would be much more difficult [to search the villages] we wouldn't find as many things as we find, and the people would probably not be as receptive to us," said Quiggle, a Greensburg, Pa., native. He 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.
