    Afghan National Army Col. Muhammad Sarwar, the 1st Brigade, 215th Corps executive officer, shares an afternoon meal with Trek Nawa elders during a shura here, Jan. 29. Sarwar urged the people to take ownership of their community, work with Afghan forces in their district to maintain security and help build southern Helmand into a prosperous region of Afghanistan. The shura coincided with a clearing operation conducted by Afghan National Army soldiers with 1st Brigade, 215th Corps as part of Operation Tageer Shamal (Shifting Winds) Jan. 28-30. Similar to a recent clearing operation conducted by the ANA in the Shorshorak area of Nawa, Afghan forces led and conducted the clear of Trek Nawa, a sparsely populated region between Marjah and Nawa districts, with minimal assistance from coalition forces with 2nd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment.
