Troops Drop Off Needed School Supplies

10th Mountain soldiers stationed at Camp Mike Spann and Afghan National Army soldiers from Camp Shaheen visited Aliabad school in the Nahr-e Shahi District to deliver school supplies during a humanitarian mission. Before the supplies were distributed, several distinguished guests gave speeches about the future of Afghan education. Religious Cultural Advisor Col. Ahmad Sha Ariawi, ANA 209th Corps, stated that it is the ANA’s responsibility to provide freedom and peace to the region so that Afghan children can pursue a meaningful education. The ceremony also included a blessing from an imam before participants placed the first foundation stones at the site where the school will undergo construction for an expansion. The 10th Mountain donated several chalk boards, writing paper and pencils. Photo by Tech. Sgt. Casey Martin
