Community Based Security Solutions (CBSS) on Patrol in Laghman Province

An important aspect of transferring security functions from ISAF forces to the Afghans over the next few years will be partnering with Afghan ANA and ANP units and helping local village and community security forces defend their villages.  A recent patrol by the 179th Infantry, 45th Infantry Brigade is doing just that - by partnering with the Afghan National Army and members of the Community Based Security Solutions (CBSS) police organization while conducting operations supporting Operation Aluminum Python.
