Soldiers from the Botswana Defense Force utilize the road to Mkankake Range as the 631st Engineers Company of Lawrenceville, Ill., assists the BDF engineers with improvements to the existing road used for access to range near the small village of Mkankake. The sand road washes out during the rainy season creating deep crevices in the road making it impassible. The engineers are participating in Southern Accord 2012 an annual combined, joint exercise that brings together U.S. military and BDF to conduct various operations to enhance military capabilities and interoperability.
