187th Infantry Regiment - Iron RakkasansFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchPaktika Province, Afghanistan – A blockade on the Marjaneh bazaar that threatened to starve Waza Khawa residents into supporting the insurgency recently ended thanks to Soldiers from Company C, 3rd Battalion, 187th Infantry Regiment and Afghan Uniformed Police in the area.

The blockade began in early June, with insurgents using a combination of improvised explosive devices, indirect fire and small arms in an effort to keep food shipments and coalition forces away from the area, said 3-187 spokesman U.S. Army 1st Lt. R.J. Peek, from Fort Campbell, KY.

In response, coalition forces began construction on a checkpoint June 9th.

During the construction process, U.S. Soldiers, AUP and members of the Afghan National Army provided security. The checkpoint was completed June 28th.
