U.S. Army Sgt. Jeff Sheppard, a Bulldog Troop, Red Platoon scout (7th Squadron, 10th Cavalry Regiment), scans a village for insurgent activity during a foot patrol in northern Bala Murghab Valley, Baghdis province, Afghanistan, April 4, 2011. Moments after returning to a ceased compound once the patrol completed, insurgents launched a coordinated and accurate attack against the patrol, wounding Sheppard, three other service members and a military working dog. The operation was successful and coalition forces destroyed insurgent compounds and improvised explosive device making facilities in the engagement.
