Face Of The Day


An American Marine, sitting inside the cargo hold of a C-130J Super Hercules transport aircraft headed to Kandahar, gestures as British and US forces withdraw from the Camp Bastion-Leatherneck complex at Lashkar Gah in Helmand province on October 27, 2014. British forces on October 26 handed over formal control of their last base in Afghanistan to Afghan forces, ending combat operations in the country after 13 years. The Union Jack was lowered at Camp Bastion in the southern province of Helmand, while the Stars and Stripes came down at the adjacent Camp Leatherneck – the last US Marine base in the country.
