US Soldiers from PR contribute to success in Afghanistan
June 29, 2014
Bagram, Airfield, Afghanistan- Soldiers from the 941st Quartermaster Detachment, US Army Reserve-Puerto Rico, conducted unpacking, cleaning, repacking and bracing operations in support of the retrograde operations in Afghanistan, as part of the Central Command Materiel Reduction Element (CMRE), 26 June 2014.
The CMRE has proven essential in supporting our operating forces in Afghanistan with equipment and base reduction efforts and will continue to be a vital enabler throughout the transition.
The soldiers from the largest US Army Command in the Caribbean play a critical role in the current transition in Afghanistan. Personnel and equipment will be redeployed and retrograded in a phased approach during 2014, managed by the commanders on the ground and the military chain of command. This phased approach will allow the U.S. to maintain a robust capability to support the Afghan National Security Forces through the remaining International Security Assistance Force mission while sustaining our force protection posture.
