Tangled Up in Green
Camp Shorab, Afghanistan
Members of the Afghan special forces carry out a night-training exercise with their U.S. allies on September 10. After more than 15 years of war with the Taliban, 11,000 American troops remain in Afghanistan, down from roughly 100,000 at their height. Thousands more will soon arrive to help train and advise the Afghan special forces, who are expected to double their ranks.
