The Afghan mountains are reflected in the visor of a US Army Airborne CH-47 Chinook window gunner while flying behind U.S. Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel as he travels to visit American troops at Forward Operating Base Gamberi December 7, 2014. Hagel on Sunday met with troops in Afghanistan on what is likely his last visit there before stepping down from his post. Hagel's visit comes one day after he announced that the U.S. will keep up to 1,000 more soldiers in Afghanistan into next year than previously planned, saying the additional forces were needed because delays in signing security pacts had impacted plans to raise troops from other countries.
