Corporal Pascal Allard, from B Company, 2nd Battalion, Royal 22e Régiment (R22eR) serving with the 3rd Battalion Battle Group, keeps watch after dismounting from the LAV III vehicle to perform a security check while on a convoy mission to Gundey Ghar, a strong point in the Zhari District.

About 2500 CF members are currently serving as part of Joint Task Force Afghanistan Roto 4. The personnel consist primarily of the 3rd Battalion R22eR from the 5e Group-brigade mécanisé du Canada (5 GBMC) Valcartier, Quebec. They, along with other supporting members from various units in the CF, play a key role in the NATO-led International Security Assistance Force (ISAF) mission to improve security in Afghanistan and assist in the rebuilding process.
