Kandahar Air Field, Zabul Province, Afghanistan
Well folks, my days of running the ECP (Entry Control Points) have now come to an end.
I'm off to a new FOB (Forward Operating Base) in Zabul Province. I've been promoted to Site Manager, so I will be in charge of the civilian contracting component on the base. All the trades, the dining facility, aviation components, and security are within my area of responsibility. Think of it as being the Superintendent of a very large school system... that has a lot of guns. Everything that affects the infrastructure and operations of the base runs through my staff and I.The military doesn't do those things anymore! It is all outsourced to civilian contractors. Fortunately I have a high speed staff to assist me. (And keep me out of trouble!) I'll be at KAF for a few days getting up to speed, and then it's off to this new adventure!
I wish I had more time to share with you all, but duty calls, and I have to answer.
In the meantime, I have several posts scheduled to pop up every few days. When I hit the ground I'll share more with you!
Be safe, be vigilant, stay alert!
