I wonder if William Arkin will cover this? From Defend America (a webpage title that probably gives Arkin the heeby jeebies.)
Units and Provincial Reconstruction Teams in eastern Afghanistan conducted humanitarian missions throughout the region.
The Khost PRT worked with the Afghan Border Patrol to distribute hygiene kits, soccer balls and clothing to village elders from Tughu village.
The Sharana PRT and sub-governor participated in a humanitarian assistance mission in Barlake Village. Food, clothes, first-aid kits and school bags were passed out.
Soldiers from 2nd Battalion, 30th Infantry Regiment conducted a joint medical civic action program in conjunction with a shura in Giro District, Ghazni Province. The MEDCAP treated a total of 837 patients; 334 males, 72 females and 431 children.
In Paktika Province, two separate humanitarian aid missions were conducted. Food, blankets and clothing were distributed to locals.
The continued effort of International Assistance Security Forces soldiers and local governments will help to increase the quality of life for the citizens of Afghanistan.
In William Arkin's world (read the Left side of America), the military are berserk murderers, hell bent on world domination and siezing oil fields, along with some rape and torture. Of course, that story from Defend America is probably manufactured, and never took place, to the "reality based community." Snicker.
Keep up the great work, troopers!
