Memorial Day: Corps of Engineers' Volunteers Celebration in Afghanistan

The dinner line was stacked up for at least an hour as more than 500 people enjoyed the traditional holiday barbecue during the Afghanistan Engineer District-North's Memorial Day Rembrance and Celebration Sunday in Kabul, Afghanistan. Deployed Corps of Engineers employees, service members and supporting contractors celebrated much like their families stateside with a day of rest filled with an American barbecue, horse shoes, basketball, volleyball, a tug-of-war, movies and other activities. Sharing a Memorial Day celebration in a war zone provides a unique meaning to those who serve here.
