First Lt. Nathan Wagner from Richmond, Va., quickly briefs his platoon as they prepare to move to contact outside of Combat Outpost Deh Yak. While collecting biometric data from locals, the unit began receiving small arms fire after an armored vehicle struck a mine outside the village. U.S. forces and their Afghan National Security Forces partners worked together to disrupt insurgent movements into and through the area ahead of the spring fighting season.
