Why Hairatan Gate matters

 

Written by Sgt. 1st Class Pete Mayes
101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (AA) Public Affairs

101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBalkh Province, Afghanistan – The 101st Sustainment Brigade has continued to work with their northern Afghan partners in ensuring the success of the ambitious Hairatan gate border crossing project.

The project, also known as the Northern Distribution Network, has been cited by brigade commander Col. Michael Peterman as a “logistical game-changer” if done correctly, particularly in terms of what it will mean for the Afghan community and U.S. forces as they prepare for the eventual withdrawal.

The “Lifeliners” serve as the proverbial “eyes and ears” for coalition forces in Regional Command North for U.S. and Afghan cargo supply and distribution coming in and out of the country through the area, said Maj. Jesse Wentworth, former tactical command post officer in charge for Forward Operating Base Hairatan.
