FORT KNOX, KY (WAVE) – Fort Knox soldiers played a key role in a major operation in Afghanistan. The moves made by the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Infantry Division were intended to severely degrade insurgent activity before the spring fighting season.

During "Operation Maiwan," American troops worked alongside their Afghan national security force. They also helped recover and eliminate weapons caches across two provinces during the operation.
