Col. Edward Bohnemann, commander, 172nd Infantry Brigade, walks on patrol in the remote village of Marzak to survey new Afghan Local Police checkpoints. Marzak has historically been a stronghold for the insurgency over the past decade until the Afghan and U.S Forces took advantage of the winter months to establish a local police force and secure the village from foreign fighters who transit the area during the fighting season.
