Asadabad Camp Wright

These are some pictures taken at Camp Wright, the home of the Kunar Provincial Reconstruction Team. Asadabad is the provincial capital of Kunar province, much the same as Springfield being the capital of Illinois. The PRT is to have a provincial perspective on the reconstruction efforts, to coordinate larger scale projects that would have impacts throughout the province. The top two pictures show a couple of abandoned soviet tanks and the bottom show a garden area on the PRT. I spend two and a half days here meeting with Dr. Safi from the AVA, meeting the PRT civilian reps, and two other new USDA employees coming into Kunar. The Agricultural Development Team (a group of National Guardsmen who come from agricultural background) headquarter here as well; these guys are a great asset, they bring a lot of enthusiasm for their job and will cause things to happen.
