NANGARHAR PROVINCE, Afghanistan – Missouri Army National Guard and Air Force National Guardsmen, who work with the Nangarhar Agri-business Development Team, recently assessed ongoing projects and spoke with government leaders in the Surkh Rod and Chaparhar districts, Nangarhar province, eastern Afghanistan, Aug. 28.
The assessments allowed service members to ensure projects were advancing according to schedule and gauge the successful projects the unit has already completed, such as wells, roads, and other ongoing ADT-funded projects in the districts.
Chapahar district Sub-Governor, Mohammad Hussan, toured the facilities with the service members and was very pleased with the results thus far.
When U.S. Army Lt. Col. David L. Boyle, ADT commander, asked Hussan how he felt about the projects, Hussan said, proudly, “They are wonderful. My people will be very happy to have these things to use for themselves.”
In a separate quality assessment and control check, the ADT and Chaparhar agriculture extension representatives, visited a cold storage facility, a meat processing center, and a green house in the Chaparhar district, Sept. 16.
The cold storage facility, which is the first of its kind in the province, will allow villagers to preserve fruits, vegetables, and meats for an additional 45-60 days longer.
The meat processing center, which is entirely solar powered, will provide a centralized sanitary location for butchers to process animals and will greatly improve the public health of the district.
The Missouri Guardsmen have been pleased by the progression of the facilities.
