Three Marines with 3rd Platoon prepare for a patrol while two others take a load off during Operation Double Check, an ongoing operation to promote legitimate governance and security within the Musa Qal’eh district. The Marines belonging to Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, slept in the open during the operation and provided exterior security for their company, while their brother-in-arms with 2nd Platoon lived, operated and mentored the Afghan Uniformed Police in their newly established security outposts.
