Abstract:

An ancient Afghan proverb reflects the commitment and mindset of Afghans today Ba solha goftan dunya aram namaisha-The world will not find rest by just saying peace. As Afghans work to renew their nation, they understand that peace, stability, and an end to hostilities require more than just well-intentioned ideas they take hard work. And they are making that commitment. Afghans today are not alone. They are making this effort with the assistance of the Combined Joint Task Force-76 CJTF-76 and the coalition. Soldiers, Sailors, Airmen, and Marines, together with a variety of Federal civilians and international partners, are working hand-in-hand with Afghan leaders and citizens to craft a better future. It is a story that is unfolding far from the headlines. In fact, the coalition effort is succeeding despite headlines that suggest the opposite.
