We've been in country for almost two months now and things are progressing
fairly well. We are working with the Afghan National Police from Police
District 16 in Kabul, participating in dismounted and mounted patrols and
surveillence operations. I'm happy to say that so far, our experience with
the ANP have been very productive; as they are proud of their country, their
service to their country, and are eager to learn from us. The ANP is making
a difference in Afghanistan...However, they and their families face danger
daily. ANP officers are 30 times more likely to be killed by
anti-governmental forces than their Afghan National Army counterparts.
Their pay as well, is less than the ANA counterparts. ANP officers bring
home $30 a month, where as an ANP chief brings home $80. Providing for
themselves, much less their families, is challenging.
The soldiers of B/202d Cavalry have decided to adopt the officers and
families of Police District 16. We are requesting for the officers, black
military or police boots, notebook pads, socks, hygeine items, etc. We also
hope to care for the ANP's families, especially children. Adult clothes,
cooking supplies, hygeine items,toys, children's clothes, school supplies,
crayons, etc. are all welcomed. If you would like to help us out, you can
email packages to us at:
D Co SECFOR, 218th BCT
Camp Phoenix, APO, AE 09320
Or the B/202d Cavalry Family Readiness group at:
Family Readiness Group
1 Cavalry Lane
Beaufort, SC 29901
Thanks for ANY help you can give us.
If you can or if you know of a church group, armed forces unit or etc that would like to help, please do so. I know that it would be very appreciated by his unit and those receiving it.
Thank you Allâ€¦ God Bless the USA
