Lt. Safiullah Ahmidi, 22, executive officer Now Zad company, from Kabul, Afghanistan, says, “We are very happy to have the Marines here. Before them, we didn’t have good training or coordination. Now we can do these things on our own. It helps us a lot to have good training, we see the Marines next to us everyday. It shows what they are willing to do for us.
