Repelling an Attack
U.S. Army Specialist William B. James shoots at the enemy during a firefight that lasted more than three hours at the Shege East Afghan National Police Checkpoint in Kunar province, Afghanistan, on Sept. 18, 2010. Tiny Kunar Province sits along the Pakistan border in northeast Afghanistan.
An estimated two dozen insurgents fired rocket-propelled grenades, heavy machine guns and small arms at the post. International Security Assistance Forces and ANP responded in kind with small arms, heavy machine gun and mortar fire. Neither ISAF nor ANP personnel were injured during the attack.
