Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – “Before I started working here, I never knew if I would get paid,” said a local Afghan, who is contracted as a construction worker on Bagram Airfield. “Now, I always have money for me and my family.”

Several local Afghans work on American bases, doing anything from construction to cleaning to laundry. Making sure they receive their paychecks falls into the hands of one office on Bagram Airfield.

The Contract Vendor Services office of the 101st Finance Management Company, Special Troops Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade recently consolidated ten different offices into one central location to pay local nationals working on forward operating bases.
