In this Tuesday, May 22, 2012 photo, Afghan National Army soldier Noor Ali, 21, poses for a picture at the Chinari outpost in Logar province, east Afghanistan. Ali believes he's 21, lost his parents when he was young, never went to school, worked as a laborer. He joined the army 10 months earlier and learned basic reading and writing. He dyed his hair flaming red, explaining shyly, "I did this to look good. In my village it is popular." (AP Photo/Anja Niedringhaus) less
