DAND DISTRICT, AFGHANISTAN - New York Army National Guard Angola, N.Y. resident Lt. Col. Russell Clark (left), poses with his interpreter in an opium poppy field as Afghan National Police (ANP) use sticks to hack off the plants' seed pods before they can be used to make heroin. The field is just one of many the Dand District ANP destroyed last spring under the mentorship of Clark and other New York Army National Guard Soldiers. Photo courtesy of Lt. Col.
