Korangel Valley, Afghanistan, 03 January 2005 — 3rd Battalion Marines and sailors dash for a waiting CH-47 Chinook helicopter during the extraction phase of Operation Cornhuskers. The Marines used a vertical envelopment strategy to gain access to areas where coming in ground vehicles or on foot would give away their element of surprise.
