U.S. Airmen and local Afghan elders gathered around a broken water well in the heart of a small village outside of Bagram Airfield, Afghanistan. Together they traded ideas on how to fix the pump and bring the fresh groundwater back to the village. Members of the 777th Expeditionary Prime BEEF Squadron took on the task of fixing the multiple well pumps with the help of the 755th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron “Reapers” for security and as an operational lead.

  • Nearly 5,000 residents of DehDadi, Afghanistan, once again have running water available in their homes this week thanks to the combined efforts of the U.S. Army's 10th Mountain Division, Regional Support Command-North, and the Regional Command-North Public Affairs Advisory Team. Co...mmunity members came out to personally thank the servicemembers who worked to facilitate the repairs during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the water well house Aug. 21. The community had been without water for five weeks, leaving local women and children to walk great distances to obtain water from other sources. The community had tried to raise money from residents, but were not able to collect enough to fix the water pump, plumbing, and minor repairs. Photo by Air Force Tech. Sgt. Casey Martin, RC-North Public Affairs Advisory Team.
