Afghanistan: The Forgotten War

NOW Correspondent Bill Gentile reports from Afghanistan's southern Helmand Province, where he was embedded for nearly three weeks with the 24th Marine Expeditionary Unit. The 24th MEU faces an ominous challenge as the Taliban attempts a return to power, in some cases merging with other insurgent groups, and potentially providing safe haven for Al-Qaeda and other anti-American terrorists. This report received an Emmy nomination for Outstanding Continuing Coverage of a News Story in a News Magazine in 2009.
