Lousiana National Guard convoy halts by mosque in Kabul

A convoy supported by the Louisiana National Guard's 1086th Transportation Company, Task Force Muleskinner, sits halted in front of a mosque in downtown Kabul, May 24, 2012. The unit was on a five-day convoy from Bagram Air Field to Forward Operating Base Warrior as security for more than a dozen Afghan-owned cargo trucks, and had to stop to repair one of its vehicles.
