Spc. Tylor Calhoun, from California, provides security while fellow soldiers work to recover their heavy expanded mobility tactical truck wrecker from thick mud during a company level clearing operation near Combat Outpost Deh Yak. The joint operation between soldiers of Company C, Task Force 1-2 Infantry and their Afghan National Security Forces partners was planned to disrupt insurgent movements into and through the area ahead of the spring fighting season. The mud created by melting snow served to make movement difficult.
