U.S. marines guarding a desert airstrip in southern Afghanistan are more concerned about small groups of fighters than a major assault. 'I don't think a vehicle would get close, I would look for something smaller in size, maybe small teams looking to get to us and do some damage,' said First Sergeant Phil Fascetti whose men originally raided the airstrip last Sunday and have been defending it ever since.
