U.S. Army Staff Sgts. Neil Nunez and Justin Puchalsky, from Company A, 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, Task Force 3-66, watch the arrival of a helicopter at their remote combat outpost in 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.
