187th Infantry Regiment - Iron RakkasansFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchPaktika Province, Sar Hawza District, Afghanistan –– Task Force Iron Soldiers from Company A, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment, recently conducted a joint air-assault mission with members of the Afghan Uniform Police.

The mission was conducted to provide security to the Jarkana Village located in western Paktika province, Afghanistan. According to intelligence sources, the village is known to be one of several safe havens used by local insurgents to facilitate insurgent operations.

“Upon landing near the village, we were able to identify possible insurgents fleeing from the suspected home of an [insurgent] commander,” said U.S. Army Capt. Vance Gonzales, a native of Weddington, NC, executive officer for Co. A, 3rd Bn., 187th Inf. Reg. “Soldiers from 1st Platoon quickly moved to isolate the objective and prevent anyone else from fleeing or reinforcing the village.”

Task Force Iron Soldiers speak with local tribal elders in the village of Jarkana at a "shura" or town meeting following a recent joint air-assault mission with members of the Afghan Uniform Police.  The village, located in Paktika Province, has historically been a Taliban safehaven.  Task Force Iron Soldiers hope to change that and help increase security for the village with assistance from the AUP.
