Lynsey Addario - Marja, Afghanistan

United States Marine, Captain Emily Naslund, who commands the Female Engagement Teams throughout Helmand Province, aims her weapon after shots were fired upon the patrol of the FETs attached to Second Batallian, 6th Marine Regiment through Sistani Village, in Southern Marja, Afghanistan, September 15, 2010. Though the overall mission of the FET teams is to engage Afghan women, the female marines are increasingly exposed to small arms fire and improvised explosive attacks while on their patrols to access villages.
