Commandos and coalition special operations forces, the first to visit that area in more than two years, defeated insurgent forces overrunning a village. Commando-led missions provide national security by encouraging local villagers to look to government forces for support rather than insurgents.

The photographs are from Hetherington’s series Sleeping soldiers. The images depict U.S. soldiers serving in Afghanistan.
The billboards are on the St. Lawrence Warehouse, at the intersection of Van Horne Avenue and St. Laurent Boulevard.
The outdoor exhibition of Hetherington’s Sleeping soldiers is on display in Montreal and six other cities across Canada during the month of May: Dartmouth, Toronto, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Calgary and Vancouver.
The exhibition is part of the Scotiabank Contact Photography Festival.
