Village Gathering

Corporal Lisa Gardner and Corporal Diana Amaya, marines with the female engagement team, meet with women and children in the household of an Afghan elder in the village of Mahmoor in Mian Poshteh. The FETs are attached to marine infantry battalions throughout Helmand, and are trying to engage Afghan women to find out their needs and improve relations between Afghans and American troops.
