BAGRAM AIR FIELD, Afghanistan — In the middle of October, 80 French service members, mostly from the 27th Mountain Infantry Brigade, arrived in Afghanistan to form the Task force La Fayette Headquarters. Serving as part of Regional Command-East, TF La Fayette will assume responsibilities Nov. 2. The task force will be made up of two combined arms tactics teams in Kapisa and Paktika provinces and an aviation battalion.

When the French service members arrived in Afghanistan, they started their in-processing, and then attended several briefings at Bagram Air Field, where the headquarters of Combined Joint Task Force-82, responsible for RC-E, is located.

TF La Fayette service members attended an information and reminder program that covered rules of engagement, extraction of isolated personnel and Improvised Explosive Device dangers, which is mandatory for every service member stationed in RC-East.

After completing the training, they were stationed at Forward Operating Base Morales Frazier in Kapisa province, where the headquarters of TF La Fayette is located.
