Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Kunar Province, Afghanistan – More than 100 village elders from across the Narang District here took their first tentative steps toward securing their own communities when they came together at the district center November 2nd for a security and development shura.

The only concrete agreement to come from the shura was a decision to continue security talks, but all participants agreed on the importance of improving security in their district.

District Sub-Gov. Haji Gulam Nabi organized the shura in cooperation with the 101st Airborne Division’s Task Force No Slack, commanded by U.S. Army Lt. Col. Joel Vowell of Birmingham, AL.
