Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Connections are hard to find when there is more than 7,000 miles between loved ones. Two military families found a special way to keep their bond despite the separation. As two dads approached the end of their tour in Afghanistan, they discovered a way for their children to begin a homecoming countdown.

One hundred days out from their redeployment two soldiers with 101st Sustainment Brigade (Lifeliners) began a 100-day burpee challenge to stay actively connected with their children – in a fun healthy way – after an already long deployment away from home.

Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – The Afghan National Army (ANA) acquisitioned small arms ammunition from Coalition partners in the later part of August in Parwan province, Afghanistan. The transfer of ammunition was in response to a shortage in the southern regions of the country.

This is the first time the ANA has independently used the logistical process to acquire and distribute ammunition throughout their military formations. This action comes at a critical phase; as the country’s defense rests in the Afghan security forces ability to manage their force structure and logistically provide for those forces.
