America's Battalion by MilitaryPhotos America's Battalion by MilitaryPhotos
U.S. Marine Cpl. Kyle Click, a 22-year-old improvised explosive device detection dog handler with 3rd Platoon, Kilo Company, 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, and native of Grand Rapids, Mich., shares a moment with his dog Windy while waiting to resume a security patrol here, Feb. 27. During the patrol, the 3rd Platoon Marines partnered with Afghan National Police to search for insurgent activity in Safar Bazaar, Garmsir districtís busiest commercial center. They mentor the ANP in a partnered combat operations center at PB Bury, and patrol with them throughout Safar. The partnership is a vital part of preparing the Afghan National Security Forces to assume lead security responsibility in Garmsir.

It puts a whole new perspective on the picture when you realize either Windy or her marine could be shattered into pieces by an explosion, seeing their job is dealing with detecting explosives... but that's the nature of combat.

saw this randomly in the list, had to click on it. thanks so much for sharing! wonderful shot. i really dont care if you support this war, or that scuffle. but we as a country should ALWAYS support the men and women of the US armed forces. they deserve so much from us for what they do and see all for our safety and freedom. lets face it, when men like Cpl. Click here go into places we as the American public dont like, its all based on the desicions of men and women we elected into government.
