Marines with 3rd Platoon walk toward a CH-53 Sea Stallion during a night extract after participating in the initial phase of Operation Double Check, an ongoing operation to promote legitimate governance and security within the Musa Qal’eh district. The Marines belonging to Echo Company, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, would soon return to the area after a few days of rest at Combat Outpost Shir Ghazi. Third Platoon spent its time during the battalion operation clearing objectives and providing security for the company and the Afghans, while the Afghan Uniformed Police and Marines with 2nd Platoon, Echo Company, established new AUP security posts in the area.
