Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – “There’s a lot of ammo out there from the past 10 years,” said Capt. Marjorie Samples. “It’s handed from unit to unit, year to year.”

The 101st Sustainment Brigade “Task Force Lifeliner” is leading a process, called “Operation Clean Sweep,” to sweep through Regional Command East by inventorying ordnance, sending the old ammunition off smaller outposts, and preparing better storage for the future.

“It’s an effort to address ammunition and explosive issues in the battlespace after ten years of war,” said Samples, the ammunition (Class V) officer in charge for support operations, 101st Sustainment Brigade. “Some of the issues are excess ammo, unserviceable ammo and improper storage of ammo.”
