Kunduz, Afghanistan – As coalition forces work feverishly to prepare for the 2014 withdrawal, soldiers from the 524th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion made one last retrograde run to Kunduz. This was to be the cumulative event moving hundreds of trucks full of military equipment, fuel and supplies in and out of the North in a massive effort to close this key military base.

Reminiscent of the initial days of the Kunduz Operating Base, all the chow halls, tents and unit headquarters were nowhere to be seen. Soldiers spent their last night asleep on the ground strategically circled around their trucks in an attempt to get enough rest for long-haul back to Camp Marmal in Mazar-i-Sharif.

Soldiers from the 1230th Transportation Company, a National Guard Unit out of Thomasville, GA, supporting the 524th Combat Sustainment Support Battalion, made one last retrograde run to Forward Operating Base Kunduz, in October 2013, to pick up the last items to be retrograded prior to transferring the base to Afghan National Security Forces.
