For all of you who were away from the computer during the holiday weekend, welcome back. I thought it’d be a good idea to share here the Associated Press photograph posted above, as highlighted on our Line of Sight blog.
If you’re playing catch-up, it’s worth reading back a few entries to see what senior writer Gina Cavallaro and photographer Tom Brown are up to Sangin, Afghanistan.
They’re embedded with 1st Battalion, 5th Marines, out of Camp Pendleton, Calif., and received a sobering assessment of the security situation Marines there face. They also were at Forward Operating Base Jackson this weekend during a shooting incident that killed a member of the Afghanistan National Army and wounded a Marine.
