Afghan National Army soldiers march in the Sangin district of Kandahar province in southern Afghanistan on Thursday, June 13, 2013. One of the most significant turning points in one of America's longest and costliest wars is imminent: Afghanistan's fledgling security forces are taking the lead for security nationwide, bringing the moment of truth on the question of whether they are ready to fight an insurgency that remains resilient after nearly 12 years of conflict. That question is especially pressing here in this border region, where insurgents regularly ambush government forces and control parts of the countryside. (AP Photo/Allauddin Khan)
