    Capt. Duke Reim, 1st Battalion, 12th Infantry Regiment, Charlie Company commander, and Human Terrain Team members talk with a local village elder during a village assessment. As Capt. Reim is finding out, the villagers are more receptive to him and his Soldiers when they see them interacting with them on a personal level, providing consistent security and meeting their needs. The Human Terrain Team embeds anthropologists and other social scientists with combat units in the field to help commanders understand local cultures.
