Afghan, Marine partnership brings progress to Garmsir
GAMRSIR DISTRICT, Afghanistan (November 09, 2011) — Walking down the street of a local bazaar here without a flak jacket or Kevlar seemed a little risky. I hustled past the group of local Afghan government officials, took a knee and snapped another photo. A local man involved in a pending investigation was released from custody and the district leaders wanted to celebrate his return. Marines from 1st Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment escorted the man to the district center and were in turn invited to take a walk around the Hazar Joft bazaar here, Nov. 2.
