Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan – Service members deployed to Afghanistan have several ways to pay for necessities. While some soldiers go for the plastic approach, like Eagle Cash, credit cards or debit cards, some stick with the classic paper bills.

With paper currency comes the possibility of fake money, but finance soldiers here are prepared to separate the genuine from the frauds.

Soldiers of the 101st Finance Management Company, 101st Special Troops Battalion, 101st Sustainment Brigade learned the basics of identifying counterfeit currency during a training opportunity. The class, taught by U.S. Secret Service special agents, showed the soldiers how genuine American dollars are made during the training.
