America's Battalion, Afghan Army Complete First Task in Operation Cobra

Pfc. William J. Pruitt, machine gunner, Weapons Platoon, Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, takes a drink from his hydration system during Lima Company's convoy from Combat Outpost Toor Ghar to Southern Shorshork, Helmand province, Afghanistan, as part of 3/3's mission in Operation Cobra June 16. The convoy took longer than expected, and Pruitt, from Seattle, spent almost seven hours in his vehicle where he said it was, "hot as hell." Operation Cobra is a joint operation between Marine Corps units and the Afghanistan National Army to disrupt enemy forces, which have been using the sparsely populated region between Marjah and Nawa as a safe haven.
