Staff Sgt. Wavie Shumate, from California, finishes filling up his armored vehicle while on a long range mounted operation in eastern Afghanistan. Despite heavy snow and freezing temperatures, elements of Task Force 3-66, 172nd Infantry Brigade and their Afghan National Security Forces drove cross country through snow drifts as deep as four feet to reach a remote village in search of insurgent caches.
