Mortar men from Company A, 2nd Battalion, 28th Infantry Regiment, Task Force 3-66, illuminate the hills surrounding the remote village of Marzak. Marzak has been a haven for insurgent fighters over the past decade. A new police checkpoint is being constructed through the winter in Marzak to disrupt the movement of insurgent forces through the area, located just 6 km from the site of the Battle of Takur Ghar.
