Kandahar, Afghanistan—U.S. Marines arrive in the city from Camp Leatherneck, the last U.S. base in the country, on October 27. After 13 years, British and U.S. forces are withdrawing from the Camp Bastion-Leatherneck complex in Helmand province, officially marking the end of joint operations in the country, and handing control of the complex to Afghan forces. The Stars and Stripes and Union Jack were lowered earlier that day in a ceremonial end to the war, which began after the 9/11 attacks.Launch Slideshow 4 PHOTOS
