Infantrymen disrupt Taliban lethal aid in Helmand province

Captain Scott Stewart, commanding officer, Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, and a native of El Cajon, Calif., scans for suspicious activity through a hole in a mud wall during a mission in Helmand province, Afghanistan, April 17. The company’s two-day mission was to disrupt lethal enemy aid and to search three compounds of interest in an area suspected of Taliban influence. The compounds were suspected to contain a homemade-explosive lab, a cache for narcotics and be home to local Taliban leadership.
