Roger Turner, commanding general of Task Force Southwest, greets an Afghan role player before a key leader engagement during the full mission rehearsal at forward operating base Bravo, Camp Lejeune, N.C., Feb. 28, 2017. The Marines worked with Afghan role players to gain better cultural understanding before deploying later this year to Helmand Province, Afghanistan. Task Force Southwest is comprised of approximately 300 Marines whose mission will be to train, advise and assist the Afghan National Army 215th Corps and the 505th Zone National Police.
