Excerpt from Chapter 15 of The Salacia Project

“On the Afghan side of the bridge, there was a single ANP pickup truck, one of the many thousand dark green Ford Rangers used by the Afghan National Police for patrols and transportation.”

Afghan National Police

The green Ford Ranger pickup trucks with ANP (Afghan National Police) are everywhere in Afghanistan, especially in populous areas of the country. I captured this photograph in February 2011, and in it you can see ANP members stationed on the bridge at a checkpoint where the road leads into Afghanistan from Iran. One of them is wielding a rocket propelled grenade (RPG) launcher, and the others carry AK47s.
