ZOLDAG MONGAH, KANDAHAR PROVINCE - OCTOBER 09: (FRANCE OUT) Capt. Nicholas Stout of Lake Orion, Michigan (R) admonishes an Afghan man who stole a pay ticket from a child to try to garner payment sponsored by the 101st Airborne Division of the US Army that employs local village men and children in manual labor October 9, 2010 near Zoldag Mongah west of Kandahar. Men are paid up to $20 a day; children are paid $5 to $10, mostly for work cleaning up trash and clearing ditches. The 1st Battalion, 2nd Brigade of the 101st Airborne, the storied "Black Hearts" that won fame on D-Day and in other battles, are currently spread out in the Taliban-infused badlands west of Kandahar, attempting to sway the hearts and minds of the local populace even as Taliban militants continue their attacks in the restive area.
