Lance Cpl. Shawn Madruga, left, machine gunner, Weapons Company, 1st Battalion, 7th Marine Regiment, and a native of Tuolumne, Calif., leads Marines out of a field 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.
