FRIDAY FOTO (June 29, 2012)
An Afghan soldier runs past a U.S. Army paratrooper during a firefight with insurgent forces near Joint Security Station Hasan, which is close to the village of Spedar in southern Afghanistan’s Ghazni province.
It was really hard to pick a photo from the Defense Department slideshow that exhibited the above photo. The photo below shows just how bucolic the landscape in this area of Afghanistan is — until the shooting starts. The photo shows U.S. paratroopers and Afghan soldiers heading toward Spedar.
