The 3rd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, Combined Action Company, conducted a clearing operation in Gowragi, Afghanistan, Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.

The operation was followed by a sustained presence in the area, during which the company, made up of both Marines and Afghan Army soldiers from the 1st Kandak, 1st Brigade, 215th Corps, conducted patrols and gathered census data.

In the past Marines have had little presence in the area where the operation took place, making the information gathered beneficial in helping to paint a clear picture of Gowragi.

"It’s important to get a pulse of the area and the people there," said Capt. Jason Armas, the commanding officer of Headquarters Company, 3/3. "It’s a good area of influence for us."
