Description The following is the author's description of the photograph quoted directly from the photograph's Flickr page.
"U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Jeremy Torres-Cortes attempts to speak with an Afghan villager by pointing to a phrase on his language translation card while patrolling the Wadawu valley of Nuristan province, Afghanistan, Aug. 7. U.S. Service Members are issued the cards, which offer basic phrases in Afghanistan's native languages, as well as pictures, before deploying to Afghanistan. Torres-Cortes is a member of Headquarters and Headquarters Battery, 2nd Battalion, 77th Field Artillery Regiment, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, based out of Fort Carson, Colo. The patrol was part of an operation where Afghan national security forces and International Security Assistance Forces teamed up to disrupt insurgent activity before the nation's second national elections, scheduled for late August.
