"US Armed Forces join with NATO troops to battle the insurgency in Afghanistan led by the radical Taliban"

"Operation Enduring Freedom" (OEF) is the official name used by the U.S. government for the War in Afghanistan, together with a number of smaller military actions, under the umbrella of the Global "War on Terror" The term "OEF" typically refers to the war in Afghanistan.

The War in Afghanistan began on 7 October 2001, as the armed forces of the United States, the United Kingdom, Australia, France, and the Afghan United Front (Northern Alliance) launched Operation Enduring Freedom. The primary driver of the invasion was the September 11 attacks on the U.S.

The War in Afghanistan is also the United States longest running war.
