U.S. and Afghan Forces work to secure ancient fortress

Khan Nechion Castle:
U.S. Marines and soldiers from the ANA now occupy the castle in south Helmand Province. Before it was taken over by the Taliban, it was the compound for the District Governer. It will be turned back over to him as soon as it is secured; possibly within the next two weeks. The castle is an ancient fortress built by Alexander the Great.
