Embed with US military Kapisa province Provincial Reconstruction Team

October 22, 2009

Photos of my time with the US military’s Kapisa province Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) are courtesy of Captain Darrick Lee, US Air Force Public Affairs Officer.  I apologize that many of these photos include me in the shot – but they should give you a sense of a PRT operation.  I will write more later.

These photos document:

  • Construction of Bolaghain, Malikar and Omar Shahid High Schools
  • Koh Band to Durnama Road and “9km” road construction
  • Failed attempt to hold women’s training at Al Baruni University
  • Kapisa Province governor, ministers, aids, contractors and farmer’s Community Development Council leaders gather for a monthly meeting with PRT commanders and US Department of State and US Agency for International Development representatives
  • Mission briefs and debriefs
  • Bagram Air Force Base drop off and pickup area, accommodations and bunkers
