Command Sgt. Maj. Bryant C. Lambert, 82nd Airborne Division and Regional Command (South) command sergeant major, laughs as Command Sgt. Maj. Thomas R. Capel, the former 82nd Airborne Division and incoming International Security Assistance Force command sergeant major, tells a joke to a meeting of first sergeants, sergeants major and command sergeants major of the 159th Combat Aviation Brigade on Kandahar Airfield, Jan. 17. Capel's visit was geared towards learning more about the mission in RC(S), as well as meeting with soldiers and senior enlisted service members to gain a better appreciation for their challenges and successes in the region. His major emphasis to service members at every level was the importance of putting Afghans in the lead by encouraging them to conduct more and more missions, training and operations independent of NATO forces.
