101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division

Forward Operating Base Deh Dadi II, Afghanistan – First Lt. Gabriel Chol Deng said he does not envy his fellow officers when they speak fondly of their childhood memories, but he does find himself having to walk away from those particular conversations.

Instead of enjoying a carefree youth and adolescence, Deng spent several years as an orphan separated from his family and as a guerilla fighter in his native Sudan. He was one of the infamous, “Lost Boys of Sudan,” one of thousands of displaced boys whose youth was marred by violence, brutality and survival.

And while Deng admits it’s sometimes hard to remember those hardships of his past, he said he chooses not to dwell on them.

First Lt. Gabriel Chol Deng endured many hardships as on the "Lost Boys of Sudan.” Today, he is a soldier assigned to the 530th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade. (Photo by Sgt. 1st Class Peter Mayes)
