Photo Spotlight: Stand back

A soldier with the 101st Airborne Division Alpha Battery 1-320th fires an AT-4 during a recent Taliban attack on the outskirts of the village of Jellawar in the Arghandab Valley.

The blast coming from the back of the the anti-tank weapon kicks up a cloud of dust and debris - including spent shell casings from other weapons.

    knowledge is power. and it's true. knowledge can be used in 2 things good and evil.
    1. People who have power always telling and spreading "Peace and let's Unite". but they're the one who's backbone of the killings and corruptions. that's evil knowledge (Brainwash).2. people that doesn't have any power (like us. Civilians , loyal citizens)..spreading the word of God city to city and people to people it doesn't matter what religion we are. we have more knowledge and wisdom to the people who has power.we understand everything and we believe in something..Why Us all take the time and reach others arm with love and faith. for the sake for our children and for the future. that's Good knowledge and good heart. we lived for freedom we lived for faith and we lived for hope.
