Special team of Soldiers drop supplies from the skies

 

Written by U.S. Army Sgt. Brent C. Powell 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchPaktika Province, Afghanistan – With the constant threat of improvised explosive devices and insurgent attacks, as well as few usable roads and treacherous mountain passes, getting necessary supplies to troops at some of Afghanistan’s most remote posts and bases can prove both challenging and deadly.

In order to combat those threats and still accomplish the mission, a special team of Soldiers and civilians are working together at Forward Operating Base Sharana in a unique partnership.

The team uses a highly-effective and battle-proven method of resupply called low-cost, low-altitude air drops.

Special clinic treats Soldiers with special injuries

 

Written by U.S. Army Sgt. Brent C. Powell 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchPaktika Province, Afghanistan – Insurgent attacks, improvised explosive devices and even vehicle rollovers are all common threats on today’s battlefield that can cause a variety of injuries to Soldiers.

Some of the most common injuries are easy to recognize such as broken bones, bullet and shrapnel wounds. But there is another common injury, mild traumatic brain injury, which is much more difficult to spot, but still potentially life-threatening.

In order to effectively diagnose and treat MTBIs, a special clinic was established at Forward Operating Base Sharana in late April.
