LCpl John Westwood, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, negotiates the narrow ledge of a guard tower after putting the finishing touches on the U.S. and Afghanistan flags he erected at the main gate of FOB Hassanabad which Golf Company of the 2/2 calls home in the Helmand Province of Afghanistan, December 1, 2009. He said after erecting the flag, "I was putting up the American flag and the Afghan flag and I felt all the honor in the world to be able to do something like that- to put up our flag in a foreign country I think was a great deal. When I was finished putting those flags up... the words couldn't... can't express the way it made me feel." (Chuck Liddy/Raleigh News & Observer/MCT)
