Soldiers from B Company, 9th Engineer Battalion, put their new forklift to work Nov. 23, 2011, moving kicker boxes shortly after it was dropped by air at a drop zone near Forward Operating Base Curry in Eastern Afghanistan. It was the first forklift ever dropped in theater and weighing 15,000 pounds, it was also the heaviest platform ever dropped in theater as well.
