101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – There’s no Walmarts in Afghanistan.

Picking up the bullets, vehicle parts, lumber isn’t as easy as driving down the street with a shopping list and a credit card.

When the 101st Sustainment Brigade needs supplies for the thousands of servicemembers it supports in Afghanistan, the liaison office in Kuwait makes sure the Lifeliners equipment never dwindles.

Ensuring supplies reach the soldiers it needs is the priority for the 101st Sustainment Brigade's Liaison Office. Here, Staff Sgt. Larry Dixon, LOG expeditor non-commissioned officer, is preparing bundles at the yard. (Courtesy Photo)

Special team of Soldiers drop supplies from the skies

 

Written by U.S. Army Sgt. Brent C. Powell 3rd Brigade, 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne Division PatchPaktika Province, Afghanistan – With the constant threat of improvised explosive devices and insurgent attacks, as well as few usable roads and treacherous mountain passes, getting necessary supplies to troops at some of Afghanistan’s most remote posts and bases can prove both challenging and deadly.

In order to combat those threats and still accomplish the mission, a special team of Soldiers and civilians are working together at Forward Operating Base Sharana in a unique partnership.

The team uses a highly-effective and battle-proven method of resupply called low-cost, low-altitude air drops.
