NATO ran a display campaign in the Washington, D.C., metro system from 23 March through 19 April 2009, coinciding with the 60th Anniversary Summit jointly hosted by France and Germany in Strasbourg and Kehl. The 20”x21” displays ran inside the Washington Metro cars where they were visible to tens of thousands of commuters and tourists daily. The displays used powerful, intimate photographs to illustrate the diverse missions performed by Allies and Afghans in support of the security mission in Afghanistan. They include Spanish tactical air controllers, British Royal Marine Commandos, Afghan National Army and Police, Lithuanian civil affairs teams and French paratroopers, among others.
