    Operation Allies Welcome - Operation Allies Refuge

    Lt. Col. Colin Fleming, father to 1st Lt. Morgan Fleming, an armor officer with 1st Battalion, 35th Armored Regiment, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 1st Armored Division, performs the oath of the commissioned officer virtually during her commissioning ceremony in May 2019. This ceremony marks the transition from officer trainee to leader of soldiers, resulting in a cadet becoming a commissioned officer. Lt. Fleming serves as the officer in charge of a female engagement team in support of Operation Allies Welcome at Fort Bliss’ Doña Ana Complex in New Mexico, Sept. 16, 2021. FETs assist female Afghan guests with navigating in-processing procedures and other issues and concerns they may have. The Department of Defense, through U.S. Northern Command, and in support of the Department of Homeland Security, is providing transportation, temporary housing, medical screening, and general support for at least 50,000 Afghan evacuees at suitable facilities, in permanent or temporary structures, as quickly as possible. This initiative provides Afghan personnel essential support at secure locations outside Afghanistan. (Courtesy photo provided by the Fleming family)
