Many of the influential Afghans from the area were invited to the RIP TOA ceremony as well; they came bearing gifts for the old and new commanders - picoles, plastic flowers to ward off evil spirits, and beautiful full length felt coats. Haji Arif is pictured speaking for the Afghans, basically saying thank you for all your help and wishing success to the new unit. In the other pictures, LTC Pearl and Joe Ryan model their picoles and the coats.
