Afghanistan, U.S. Army Pfc. Rex Davis, of Woodbury, Ga., a gunner with 2nd Platoon, Troop C, 3rd Squadron, 61st Cavalry Regiment, Task Force Destroyer, fires an automatic grenade launcher against anti-Afghan positions during a complex attack against Combat Outpost Bari Alai, April 10. Afghan national army and International Security Assistance Forces fought off AAF throughout the afternoon of April 10 in eastern Afghanistan's Kunar province. The event started when an estimated 30 AAF fired on a dismounted patrol near Nishigam village, wounding three, and attacked the outpost with small arms and heavy machine gun fire from the surrounding territory. ANA and ISAF suppressed the attackers with direct and indirect fires, as well as air-to-ground missiles and bombs. Several anti-Afghan forces are believed to have died during the assault.
