In this April 26, 2011 photo, U.S. Army psychological operations soldiers walk past by closed shops during a patrol in Nawzad district, Helmand province south of Kabul, Afghanistan. U.S. Marines recently pacified this once violent town center, but there isn't much left of it. Nawzad's center is quiet, but its desert outskirts are still contested. The southwest province of Helmand, where Nawzad sits, is where the Afghan war is being fought hardest. The majority Pashtun province remains a vital base of operations for the insurgency.
