Afghanistan, November, 2012: First Lt. James Mauch, left, and Corpsman Christopher Coughlin, both of 3rd Battalion, 8th Marine Regiment, pause while working in Marjah district, Helmand province. A Stars and Stripes story noted that it took "three Marine battalions, an equal number of Afghan forces, and more than a thousand British and Canadian troops to secure this volatile region in Helmand province. Lives were sacrificed and billions were spent."
