Hats Off

U.S. Marine Corporal Christina Oliver, right, takes off her helmet, showing she's a woman, as the female engagement team (FET) is invited by an Afghan girl into her family home. During an operation to clear Taliban from the area in preparation of parliamentary elections in Sistani village in southern Marjah, the overall mission of the FET teams is to engage Afghan women, though the female marines are increasingly exposed to small-arms fire and improvised explosive attacks while on patrol to access villages.
