    Elements of three Kandaks belonging to theAfghanistan National Army's 1st Brigade of the 215th Maiwand Corps
    conducted clearing operations in the Trek Nawa area of Helmand province
    Nov. 18 through 24. The clearing operation highlights the 215th Corps'
    ability to deploy Kandaks as part of an operation and sustain them
    logistically for a week. The Brigade coordinated layered security
    operations with other elements of the Afghan security forces through a
    command operations coordination center established in the Trek Nawa area as part of this clearing operation. The Kandaks scheme of maneuver and
    'calls for fire' were coordinated through the COCC. Back at 1st brigade headquarters located in Garm Ser District, soldiers plotted the grid
    coordinates of the Kandak's movements towards Trek Nawa on the first day of the operation. Pictured above, an Afghanistan soldier explains the Kandak's scheme of maneuver to U.S. Marine Major Christopher
    Bourbeau,36, of Worcester Mass. Bourbeau (far right), is the security
    force assistance advisor team executive officer in charge for 1st
    Brigade of the 215th Corps ANA.
