Fort Campbell’s 1st Brigade Combat Team helps Afghan National Security Forces safeguard Economy

 

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – The Highway 7 corridor running through eastern Nangarhar isn’t like any other in the province, maybe even the country.

Sure, the two- to-three-lane asphalt road doesn’t look like much. It winds through mountains and tree-lined villages and shoots across broad, arid spaces the same as any other paved road in the region.

What makes it special is the traffic that runs along it.

Fort Campbell SFAAT Blackhorse says Afghan National Army’s 1st Kandak is proficient, capable, ready to lead

 

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Seven weeks ago, U.S. and Afghan National Security Forces worked together to clear enemy fighters from Hesarak, a remote district center in western Nangarhar Province.

That operation set several precedents: Afghan National Army and Air forces pooled their resources for a joint air assault; ANSF made their presence known in a little-patrolled area; and Afghans took the lead.
