BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Soldiers from Task Force Spartan journeyed to Afghan Border Police outpost Salala with blast wall barriers, pick axes and shovels September 27th to help the ABP fortify their position.

The short 20-kilometer distance took approximately two hours due to lack of roads and unforgiving rocky terrain. Seatbelts were the only thing preventing Soldiers from bouncing off vehicle roofs and each other as they bounced along the landscape.
