Operation Doublecheck


Marines from Fox Company, 2nd Battalion, 4th Marine Regiment, scan their surroundings for enemy combatants as an adjacent element of their patrol takes fire during Operation Double Check. Fox Company Marines, Afghan National Police, and Afghan National Security Force personnel are currently operating in historically-troubled areas of southern Musa Qala, such as Mosulmani, Khwajadad, and Surkyan, which had no Coalition presence prior to the start of the operation, Jan. 3.
