The dinner line was stacked up for at least an hour as more than 500 people enjoyed the traditional holiday barbecue during the Afghanistan Engineer District-North's Memorial Day Rembrance and Celebration Sunday in Kabul, Afghanistan. Deployed Corps of Engineers employees, service members and supporting contractors celebrated much like their families stateside with a day of rest filled with an American barbecue, horse shoes, basketball, volleyball, a tug-of-war, movies and other activities. Sharing a Memorial Day celebration in a war zone provides a unique meaning to those who serve here.
