Michael Yon: Mosquitoes

September 2, 2011

American and Afghan Soldiers share an Afghan family compound overnight in the heart of Taliban country.

During the dark nights, the infrared flash with modified camera brings out detail. The green light coming from the doorway is the improvised HQ for 4-4 Cav, from Task Force Spartan. 4-4 Cav was conducting combat operations in Zhari district of Kandahar province, Afghanistan.

The mission lasted about 48 hours during which there were about twenty firefights.

Some enemy seemed to be killed but we got lucky with only some close calls.
