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.
