Afghanistan, July, 2005: Pfc. Rommel Antonio stands in a doorway of a house in an Afghan village during a search for weapons caches and roadside-bomb makers. In his hand is a small probe used to search loose piles of dirt for buried material. Soldiers from Company A, 2nd Battalion (Airborne), 503rd Infantry Regiment, wrapped up Operation Surri Sweep in Afghanistan, calling it a “huge success.”
