The 1st Mentoring and Reconstruction Task Force is successfully identifying and removing insurgent caches throughout its area of operations in the Baluchi Valley, southern Afghanistan.

One such discovery was as the result of a patrol conducted by members of Combat Team Tusk, supported by Engineers from the 1st Field Squadron. The patrol searched a number of abandoned buildings, discovering a significant collection of ordnance, which was later destroyed by the engineers.

The discovery and removal of such caches takes dangerous weapons out of the hands of the insurgents, denying them the opportunity to use the weapons against coalition and Afghan forces and also removing a dangerous threat to the local national population. — Courtesy AdoD Fflira
