Why we serve: Sgt. Koku Adzoble, automated logistics specialist

Sgt, Koku Adzoble inventories tools June 14 on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. Adzoble, an automated logistics specialist serving with Task Force Wolfpack, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, emigrated to the United States from Togo, west Africa. "I've done well," said Adzoble. "I think the Army is relaxing for me. Every day I work as much as I can, but I still feel good about it. There's nothing wrong with that."

Guys hauling their injured and bleeding buddies. An hour earlier, they didn't think they'd be in a medevac, but here they are."
