Marines with 3rd Light Armored Reconnaissance Battalion struck a key insurgent trafficking hub on the Pakistan-Helmand province border March 14-17. The attack was a part of Operation Rawhide II, an effort to stop the flow of narcotics, weapons, and fighters into, out of, and around southern Afghanistan. The insurgency in Afghanistan traditionally reloads and goes on the offensive in the spring and summer seasons. As Sergeant Jeremy Ross reports, Marines in the far south of Helmand province went out to stop this year's spring offensive before it can begin.
