Marine forces in Afghanistan have launched an “aggressive winter campaign” in Helmand province that will include special operations raids, conventional military operations and efforts to improve the economy by creating jobs, said the senior Marine commander in Afghanistan.
Maj. Gen. Richard Mills told reporters at the Pentagon on Tuesday that winter is typically a slower season for military operations in Afghanistan, but Marine forces will push the Taliban hard over the next few months. Combat typically diminishes during the winter months there, giving insurgents time to re-equip, train their forces and recruit.
