FILE - In this Thursday, March 15, 2012 file photo, members of the Afghan Public Protection Force stand in formation as a U.S. soldier stands guard during a transition ceremony of private security forces to Afghan Public Protection Force (APPF) on the outskirts of Kabul, Afghanistan. The Afghan government is giving companies extensions ranging from a few weeks to 90 days to change from private security guards to a government-run force, NATO officials and security company managers said Sunday.
