Joseph DuWors from Seattle, Washington with the U.S. Army's 4th squadron 2d Cavalry Regiment takes a picture of SSG Danny Doss from St. Louis, Missouri as he holds his 'Daric Doll' before the start of a live-fire exercise in the desert on March 6, 2014 near Kandahar, Afghanistan. The doll is a variation of a 'Daddy Doll' which soldiers give to their children to carry with them while the soldier is deployed in Afghanistan or Iraq. Doss has carried and photographed the doll in various locations in Afghanistan during his tour. President Obama recently ordered the Pentagon to begin contingency planning for a pullout from Afghanistan by the end of 2014 if Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai or his successor refuses to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement.
