BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan--Most of the members of U.S. Army Reserve Detachment 12 arrived at Bagram Airfield September 18 to begin their year-long deployment with the 401st Army Field Support Brigade.

The Reserve Soldiers came from across the country and met at Army Sustainment Command, Rock Island, Ill. in August to begin training. Soldiers assigned to AFSBn-Kandahar flew directly to Kandahar Airfield and arrived a few days earlier than the main group.

The Bagram arrivals began several days of brigade and battalion specific training in addition to RSOI
training that included counter improvised device recognition and mine-resistant ambush-protected vehicle egress training.

The next several days were devoted to brigade and battalion briefings and finally left seat, right seat rides where the departing Soldiers provided on-the-job training as well as showing their replacements around and introducing them to people both inside and external to the 401st with whom they will be working for the next year.

Welcome DET 12!
