Soldiers from Company A, 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment, as part of Task Force Slugger, pushed westward into the Nerkh district of Wardak Province, Afghanistan, May 23-25 to focus on security.
The three-day operation, based out of a joint security station in Nerkh, emphasized detaining insurgents rather than just maintaining security presence the farther west they pushed.
Capt. Andrew Miller, commander of Co A, 2nd Bn, 30th Inf Reg, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division led the main offensive effort. Miller knows what he wants to accomplish from the operation.
