FRIDAY FOTO (Feb. 18, 2011)
A U.S. Army Special Forces soldier scans the horizon for enemy activity in Shah Wali Kot District, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan during an insurgent-clearing operation with Afghan Commandos from 2nd Company, 3rd Commando Kandak (battalion).
The soldier in the photo is assigned to Special Operations Task Force South. Because the image and accompanying Defense Department caption offer no directional information, we’re not sure if the sun is rising or setting in this photo. If you think you have the answer, please let us know in the comment box below.
