An Afghan National Army (ANA) soldier looks on while he is airlifted by a medevac helicopter from the U.S. Army's Task Force Lift 'Dust Off', Charlie Company 1-171 Aviation Regiment in Helmand province on November 1, 2011. Three ANA soldiers were shot in their legs by insurgents. There are currently 98,000 US troops out of a total NATO-led force of 130,000 deployed to Afghanistan, fighting an insurgency that remains virulent across the country, with the war now focused on the eastern border with Pakistan.
