A US Army Special Forces team is mentoring an Afghan National Army force. The purpose is to let the ANA force take the lead in operations, with the SF team in support. On October 22nd, an Afghan soldier was hit by an IED in Khak-E-Safed (Farah Province). The photos are provided by CJSOTF:

First the wounded Afghan soldier is brought to an aid station:
