Bravo Company Marines decide how much money they are willing to part with in exchange for various items offered by local villagers here on May 9. In addition to fresh bread and canned beverages, the younger locals also put hand-carved sling shots and hats up for sale to the visiting Marines who were in the area conducting a combat logistics patrol in support of the 1st Battalion, 2nd Marine Regiment.
