VICE News embedded with the Afghan National Army (ANA) in Kandahar for their first "fighting season" without the Americans. In Afghanistan, springtime starts with a bang as it marks the start of the "fighting season" between the Taliban and Afghan security forces. For the first time in 12 years, the Afghan National Army (ANA) has to operate without their American allies as US troops withdraw. VICE News' Golareh Kiazand travels to Kandahar to see how the ANA, the police, and ordinary Afghans are dealing with this turning point in a very long war.
