Summary

Elders greet each other while an Afghan Uniform Policeman sits nearby just before the start of the Matun elders security shura held Nov. 20 at Forward Operating Base Salerno. The elders were meeting for the first time to discuss their issues with leaders from the government and security forces. TF Centaur, a Fort Knox, Ky.-based unit also known as the 1st Battalion, 6th Field Artillery Regiment, 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division, Task Force Duke, worked closely with the elders to make the shura a reality. Previous efforts to meet had been complicated by the unstable security situation that had plagued the area for years.
