Soldiers with 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 4th Infantry Division, walk into the sunset to catch their flight out of Forward Operating Base Pacemaker, December 25, 2011 in Kandahar. The soldiers were on a mission to deliver holiday gifts of cookies, candy and personal hygiene products to the outlying FOB. When the Chinook helicopter flew in to pick the soldiers up, it made dust go into the air, which caused the foggy look of the photograph. (US Army photo by Sgt. Ruth Pagan, 2nd BCT, 4th Inf. Div., PAO)
