A Canadian soldier uses an interpreter to translate



A Canadian soldier uses an interpreter to translate instructions to the Afghan National Army soldiers on how to properly search a home. Canadian soldiers of the 1st Battalion, The Royal Canadian Regiment, along with Afghan National Army and Afghan National Police, took part in a partnered dismounted patrol around the Panjwai’i District in Kandahar province, Oct. 7. Ultimately, the priority for ISAF is to build up the ANA and ANP and hand over security to the Afghan security forces.

NARA keeps those Federal records that are judged to have continuing value—about 2 to 5 percent of those generated in any given year. There are approximately 10 billion pages of textual records; 12 million maps, charts, and architectural and engineering drawings; 25 million still photographs and graphics; 24 million aerial photographs; 300,000 reels of motion picture film; 400,000 video and sound recordings; and 133 terabytes of electronic data. The Defense Visual Information Distribution Service provides a connection between world media and the American military personnel serving at home and abroad. All of these materials are preserved because they are important to the workings of Government, have long-term research worth, or provide information of value to citizens.
