Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Parwan Province, Afghanistan – From pursuing insurgents over the daunting mountain peaks of Afghanistan to rescuing a local villager’s car over a 130-foot bank, the Soldiers of 2nd Platoon, Troop A, 1st Squadron, 172nd Cavalry Regiment, have proven their dedication to the people of Afghanistan and fortified a steadfast bond with the people of Parwan Province.

Nowhere is this bond more evident than in the Ghorband District Center where laughter and song poured out of the small concrete buildings as they spent evenings sitting side-by-side cross-legged on pillows with their Afghan National Police counterparts.
