U.S. Army Sgt. Christian Kapler, an infantryman from Oelwein, Iowa, from Company B, 1st Battalion, 133rd Infantry Battalion, talks on a cellphone with the interpreter of a crew of 44 Afghan local national workers he supervises March 5 at Forward Operating Base Torkham Gate, Afghanistan. Kapler stays in constant communication with the interpreter to get updates on the many projects he and his crew have ongoing at the FOB. The 31-year-old Iowa National Guard soldier and civilian union carpenter has become the go-to guy for projects on the expanding base, and his work is evident everywhere one sets foot on Torkham Gate.
