Above are a couple of pictures from a wonderful two-part photo series from Boston.com. Part 2 includes a few shots of close quarter battle with the Taliban as part of Operation Khanjar, part of the latest “surge” in Helmand, also apparently the largest Marine op since Vietnam.

Part 1 here and Part 2 here.
