Alabama native deploys, conducts counterinsurgency, stability operations in Afghanistan

Air Force Staff Sgt. Kyle Norris, deployed from the 50th Space Communications Squadron at Schriever Air Force Base, Colo., is serving in Afghanistan with a Provincial Reconstruction Team in Kapisa province. Norris, a Grove Hill, Ala., native, will complete a six-month tour with the PRT. The Kapisa PRT covers an area of approximately 1,840 square kilometers of mountainous terrain, home to nearly 365,000 Afghans. Located just North of Kabul, Kapisa is the smallest province in the country, but has the one of the highest populations per capita spread throughout seven districts. The PRT has been conducting counterinsurgency and stability operations in the province for more than six years, but this team will be the last. Norris is the non-commissioned officer in charge of three communications specialists for the PRT. He is responsible for all communication equipment for the 65-member PRT. His team also controls the radio communications at the Tactical Operations Center while the PRT is outside the wire on missions. This is his third deployment.
