Photo Spotlight: Combat Outpost Bari Alai

A rifleman with 2nd Platoon, Troop C, 3rd Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, Task Force Destroyer, fires an automatic grenade launcher during a small arms attack on Combat Outpost Bari Alai in early April. The base came under fire from anti-Afghan personnel with automatic machine guns about seven hours after a sniper also shot at the base. Neither Afghan National Army nor International Security Assistance Forces were injured during the attacks. Anti-Afghan forces have repeatedly targeted the base, located in eastern Afghanistan’s Kunar province, in an unsuccessful campaign to drive ANA and ISAF from the area.
