PICTURE of the day: Christmas Eve reassurance patrol from Patrol Base Talibjan

Setting off on a Christmas Eve reassurance patrol with the sun high in the sky. This is very unusual weather for this time of year.
Taking a break while the OMLT boss talks with the local Afghan National Police commander. A local boy looks after a flock of sheep.
Afghan National Army warriors relaxing during a break in the patrol.
Locals extending their compound walls.
The kids come out to say hello as we pass through their village.
A father and son off to meet up with family in the next village.
Weaving our way through the compounds.
Boys irrigating the fields ready for the wheat planting.
Heading home with the ANA, the patrol complete.
