KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - MARCH 18: A soldier with the Afghan National Army's (ANA) National Engineer Brigade tries to make dry land after leaping from the top of a Mabey-Johnson portable pre-fabricated bridge which his unit was learning to construct with the help of U.S. Navy Seabees from Naval Mobile Construction Battalion (MCB) 28 at the ANA's combined Fielding Center on March 18, 2014 in Kabul, Afghanistan. The Seabees are attached to the U.S. Army's 130th Engineer Brigade are responsible for training ANA soldiers various engineering tasks at the facility. In a recent speech to his country's parliament, Afghan President Hamid Karzai said U.S. troops can leave Afghanistan at the end of the year because his military was ready to take over responsibility for the nation's security.
