    Afghan children walk alongside U.S. Marine Lance Cpl. Jacob Kartchner, a team leader with 4th Platoon, Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and 28-year-old native of Long Beach, Calif., in the hopes of receiving candy from Kartchner as he patrols with fellow Marines and Afghan National Police outside the Hazar Joft Bazaar here, April 8, 2012. On the patrol, the Kilo Co. Marines partnered with members of the ANP to maintain security in and around the bazaar, one of the busiest commercial centers in Helmand province’s Garmsir district. Marines and sailors of 3rd Bn., 3rd Marines conducted counterinsurgency operations under the leadership of Regimental Combat Team 5, during their seven-month deployment in Garmsir.
