Afghan National Army soldiers with 1st Kandak, 1st Brigade, 215th Corps play volleyball here, June 27, 2012. These soldiers and those with the brigade's Route Clearance Tolai recently conducted operations with Marine advisors from Echo Company, 1st Combat Engineer Battalion in Helmand province's Nawa district. As Afghan forces across southern Helmand have taken the lead in security operations, the advisor mission of Marines like those with 1st CEB has become increasingly important.
