Spc. Alfred Kollie displays a map of Africa on the back of his helmet. In tiny script at the bottom, it says "Liberia." Kollie is a petroleum specialist with Task Force Wolfpack, 82nd Combat Aviation Brigade, serving on Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. He joined the Army shortly after emigrating to the United States from west Africa, where he spent much of his life in a refugee camp fleeing unrest and civil war in his home country.
