As the peace talk’s loom, and the Afghanistan USACE District maintains its course for success, it will continue using economical engineering solutions to build stability in the region, employing local labor, empowering them with the ability to see the fruits of their own labor.
As Afghanistan National Army and National Police security forces are in fierce fighting with insurgents to bring peace and prosperity to the region, they need better accommodations in all security bases throughout Afghanistan.
With a diverse team of professionals at the #USACE Kandahar Project Delivery Platform, the Engineers, Logistics, Con-Reps, QA Managers, COR's, Contracting, Admin Support and Submittal Coordinator were all focused on their jobs, while the Detachment Sergeant was focused on the task at hand, taking a simple group photo. Seems you never know what an #engineer is thinking.
An amended Change of Command ceremony that both reflects the significance of change but yields to the reality of the theater focus and priorities, was held at the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers Transatlantic Afghanistan District Headquarters, Bagram Airfield July 15, 2019 as the mantle of command transitioned to Col. Chris Becking from Col. Jason E. Kelly.
The mission of the Transatlantic Afghanistan District is to deliver critical host-nation security infrastructure and coalition advisory platforms in support of long term stability and international terrorism containment efforts in Afghanistan.
