1-133rd Inf. Female Engagement Team strikes a pose

LAGHMAN PROVINCE, Afghanistan – After a ruck-march around the Forward Operating Base Mehtar Lam, the ladies of the female engagement team strike a pose, March 20, as what is affectionately called, “Jodi’s Angels.” The group, lead by Capt. Jodi Marti, the commander of Company E, 334th Brigade Support Battalion, supporting the 1st Battalion, 133rd Infantry Regiment, goes on routine patrols and rugged operations with the infantrymen to engage in the half of the population that the men are not able to communicate with: the Afghan women. In this photo, list from top-down, left to right are Capt. Kimberly Lindsey, Pvt. Olivia McBride, Spc. Shannyanne Adame, Martin, Spc. Penny Herold, Sgt. Samantha Kauffman, Sgt. Shannon Osterholm, Spc. Shelia Schaffer, Sgt. Dawn Nelson, and Sgt. Elizabeth Wiedeman. (Photo by Staff Sgt. Ryan Matson, Task Force Red Bulls Public Affairs)
