KANDAHAR AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - A U.S. military cargo truck, called a Palletized Load System, bypasses a charred vehicle destroyed by a roadside bomb, while moving building materials Nov. 24 to Forward Operating Base Leatherneck, Helmand province. The 286th Combat Support Sustainment Battalion supports expansion here by running regular convoys to FOBs across Southern Afghanistan. Convoys face multiple dangers from roadside bombs, rocket-propelled grenades, small-arms fire and vehicle-born improvised explosive devices.
