Up on this cliffside base, Marines protect the landmark Kajaki Dam while surrounded by the remnants of another bloody war in Afghanistan.
Abandoned Soviet anti-aircraft guns dot the jagged ridgelines. A tank, its main gun bent like an elbow, sits on a rocky hill. Soviet-laid minefields hide nearby, lying in wait for anyone who dares to wander off marked paths and trails.
“MINES!” reads a two-foot-wide rock above FOB Zeebrugge. “KEEP TO TRACK.”
