    Cpl. Leonard R. Knudsen Jr. holds a steel rail used to attach cargo to the hull of a CH-53E Super Stallion in the hangar of Marine Heavy Helicopter Squadron 464 in Camp Bastion, Afghanistan, Aug. 2. On a recent mission, enemy small-arms fire penetrated the underside of the aircraft and went through the railing. Knudsen, an airframe mechanic with the squadron and a native of Chicago, was tasked to repair the hole. Having been in Afghanistan less than two weeks, he said seeing the bullet hole gave him new perspective on his role in the war.
