U.S. Army Sgts. Matthew Goins and Jerry Reed provide overwatch for Afghan Local Police investigating a possible IED near the village of Marzak. Marzak has been a haven for insurgent fighters over the past decade. A new police checkpoint is being constructed through the winter in Marzak to disrupt the movement of insurgent forces through the area, located just 6 km from the site of the Battle of Takur Ghar.
