Sgt. Mark L. Kwansah, a visual information equipment operator-maintainer for U.S. Army Africa, barters with a local Ghanaian shopkeeper July 12 while pricing supplies needed for MEDFLAG 11. Kwansah, originally from Ghana, uses his knowledge of the Ghanaian culture and dialects to support MEDFLAG 11, a bilateral medical exercise that increases interoperability between the U.S. and Ghana military forces. Kwansah now calls Glendale, Md., home.
