Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Pope John Paul II once said that “As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”

As a nation at war a lot is asked of Soldiers. One of the most difficult things Soldiers are asked to do is to leave their families for up to a year, so Soldiers often rely upon their families and strangers to send them care packages to bring them joy in these trying times.

U.S. Army Pfc. Cody Smith, an intelligence analyst with Headquarters Support Company, Task Force Mountain Eagle, 10th Combat Aviation Brigade, 10th Mountain Division, and his family have decided to contribute to Operation Enduring Freedom in their own way.

Lifeliners

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Three days before Christmas Brian Burrell of Pensacola, FL, wasn’t at home with his family or on vacation in a sunny locale, he was rapidly descending toward the ground in Afghanistan in a Casa 212 airplane.

The plane’s descent stopped roughly 150 feet above the ground and the back door opened. A buzzer sounded and Burrell, a civilian loadmaster at Bagram Airfield, pulled a lever and parachutes deployed as pallets stacked with food and gifts from the United States slid out the back of the plane, headed to the grateful servicemembers of Forward Operating Base Joyce. 

Pallets of supplies that include donations from the Fort Campbell, KY, can be seen at Forward Operating Base Joyce during the “Big Drop” by 101st Sustainment Brigade, Task Force Lifeliners, 101st Airborne Division, Dec. 22nd. The drop was made by air in an effort to reduce the number of convoys and, thus, possible improvised explosive attacks. (Photo by U.S. Army Spc. Adam L. Mathis, 17th Public Affairs Detachment)

Some of the Soldiers of Company E, 1st Battalion, 133rd Infantry Regiment, talked of a snowstorm back home in Iowa. However, on Forward Operating Base Mehtar Lam in eastern Afghanistan, they laughed as they tossed a University of Iowa Hawkeyes football back and forth on a beautiful, sunny, 70-degree day December 18th.

The Soldiers were relaxing before going on one of the last mail runs before Christmas. There are only a few hundred Soldiers on FOB Mehtar Lam, and even less on combat outposts Najil, Kalagush and Xio Haq, the places where some of the mail would eventually be delivered. «Read the rest of this article»
