Afghan village mullah Bas Mohammad, center, speaks with United States soldier Lt. Ross Weinshanker from Bravo Company, 2nd Battalion of the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment and an interpreter during a patrol in the village of Charbagh in the volatile Arghandab Valley, outside Kandahar City.  Mohammad said residents in Charbagh never see government representatives --- not doctors, teachers or agriculture workers --- even though the village sits on the edge of the south's largest city, Kandahar.  In areas such as these, where government authorities rarely venture, patrolling NATO troops are not just a security force: They are also envoys of the Afghan government.
