    Oakdale, Calif., native Seaman Jake Stolken (left), a corpsman, and Cpl. Nathan Davidson, a fireteam leader from Clayton, Ind., both with 1st Platoon, Fox Company, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, get some precious sleep in an abandoned compound occupied by 1st Platoon during the first week of Operation Double Check, a battalion-level offensive to rid areas in southern Musa Qal’eh district of insurgents. The Marines moved from position to position, compound to compound, during the first week of the operation. Luckily, this compound had pillows and blankets, making conditions a little more comfortable for the Marines and sailors who were combating cold weather the entire week.
