U.S. Army Pfc. Dewey So, a native of San Diego, endures the harsh blast of an Afghan winter storm in 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.
