United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – Cashiers from the 101st Financial Management Support Unit, Special Troops Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, have been traveling to various camps throughout Liberia to give service members the opportunity to withdraw cash from their paychecks.

Remote locations combined with a lack of established commercial infrastructure has resulted in the need to provide troops deployed to Liberia in support of Operation United Assistance a way to access their money.
