Sgt. James R. Humerick, a squad leader with Lima Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, points out compounds in the area to Sgt. Adam T. Springfield, an explosive ordnance disposal technician with Marine Wing Support Squadron 274, while trying to find the best place to detonate an IED cache found in an abandoned compound by Humerick and his squad during a patrol to the east of their newly established observation post during Operation New Dawn, June 20. Operation New Dawn is a joint operation between Marine Corps units and the Afghanistan National Army to disrupt enemy forces, which have been using the sparsely populated region between Marjah and Nawa as a safe haven.
