Video of U.S. Marines with 1st Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment establishing a patrol base (PB) in the kinetic village of Potay, Sangin District, Afghanistan on Oct. 5, 2011. The PB is attached by Talivan fighters but Marines repel the attack with squad organic weapons and accurate mortar fire. That evening a linguist talks to a local Afghan boy who informs him there are IEDs in the area. Video by Lance Cpl. Jacob M. Lagoze.
