Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – More than 50 deployed soldiers of the 101st Sustainment Brigade continued their lives in the Army and re-enlisted at several forward operating bases, October 2nd.

The Lifeliners are spread throughout northern and eastern Afghanistan for Operation Enduring Freedom, deployed to Iraq helping the retrograde of Operation New Dawn, and in Kuwait working the Theater Gateway.

“Where we have soldiers, we have people re-enlisting,” said Master Sgt. Michael Bonfardine, brigade career counselor.

He credits the changes in the options for the new fiscal year that allowed the Lifeliners to re-enlist. “Because they opened up the options, it allowed more soldiers to reenlist before they redeploy,” Bonfardine said.
