    SANGIN DISTRICT, Helmand province, Islamic Republic of Afghanistan - Marines from 3rd Platoon, Company B, 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment, and soldiers from 1st Tolay, 2nd Kandak, Afghan National Army, patrol through a wheat field during Operation Zapoonki Guzaroona in the Upper Sangin Valley, Afghanistan, May 23. The two rifle platoons on the ground clearing were supported by Combined Anti-Armor Teams, Scout Sniper Platoon, Advisor Training Teams and direct support assets from within the company. Every element contributed to the operations success whether they were on the ground clearing with the platoons, maintaining a security cordon to prevent enemies from fleeing the area or providing immediate intelligence to the Marines searching.
