In this Sept. 8, 2011 photo, U.S. military medical workers treat a wounded Afghan man following a bomb attack against U.S. Marines and Afghan soldiers, in Sangin, Helmand province. Sangin district has one of the highest concentrations of improvised explosive devices in the country, resulting in high numbers of Marine infantrymen losing limbs and vital organs. This is a world of fear, resolve and dark humor that is mostly hidden from accounts of the human cost of the war in Afghanistan. American troops who patrol on foot in bomb-laced areas know they might lose a leg, or two, if they step in the wrong place. But for young men in their prime, most unmarried and without children, the prospect of losing their sexual organs seems even worse. (AP Photo/Brennan Linsley) less
