United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – With a metallic groan, the doors to a twenty-foot shipping container opened to reveal a cavernous space that, come every mail day, is filled with rows upon rows of brown and white boxes – care packages for deployed Soldiers.

Away from friends, family and most everything that they are familiar with, Soldiers deployed and stationed at the Barclay Training Center in Monrovia, Liberia, in support of Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, look forward to almost anything that can give them a taste of home. Often times that taste of home comes in the mail.

Each week HHB Soldiers travel to the Roberts International Airport outside Monrovia to retrieve an average of 2,000 pounds of mail for their fellow Soldiers stationed in Liberia. (Spc.
