Marines patrol in Nishigham village close to the Pakistan border in Nuristan. The day's mission was to re-supply an OP (Observation Post) that had been attacked the day before killing one ANA (Afghan National Army) soldier. The marines are acting as an ETT (Embedded Training Team) to mentor the ANA with the ultimate aim of leaving the country's security for the local Army to deal with.
