6th Kandak Commando Honored for Actions in Kabul, Afghanistan
The 6th Kandak Commando was honored for its actions in helping to stop insurgent attacks in Kabul. The honors were rendered at Camp Morehead where the Afghan Commando school has been training commando battalions.

The Afghan Commando program is one of the things that we have managed to do right in Afghanistan.
