Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division187th Infantry Regiment - Iron RakkasansKhowst Province, Afghanistan – It takes a lot to run a city: water, electricity, trash pick-up and sewage treatment. It also takes planning, coordination and hard work. With a population of nearly 5,000, Forward Operating Base Salerno functions much like a small city and the services needed are basically the same.

The Soldiers of FOB Salerno’s base operations section have taken up the role of running their makeshift town, ensuring operations run smoothly, and ensuring both military members and civilians have what they need to carry out their missions.

Eric Davis, base operations mayor for Forward Operating Base Salerno and company first sergeant for Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division, talks with Bobby Rampy, a Fluor site safety manager from Magnolia, Texas, Sept. 24th about what actions to take to repair a leaking fuel storage tank at FOB Salerno.
