I just have to send a little shout out to my husband who had a memorable day today as he finished his tour in Kapisa with his change of command. I'm so proud!!! I love you, Curtis!!
|The commander of Provincial Reconstruction Team Kapisa, U.S. Air Force Lt. Col. Curtis Velasquez, talks with the sub-governer of Koh band District, Afghanistan, about future projects for the PRT and the future of the region. The PRT routinely performs missions throughout Kapisa to interact and engage with local leaders. The PRT's mission is to stabilize the region by enabling local governments to care for, educate, employ and protect their people through the construction of basic infrastructure and mentorship. |
He's not headed home quite yet...a couple more months doing some staff work and reports about the last year. Then he'll be headed to D.C...yes, that's not where I live, so we'll have a bit of a love-commute. Luckily he likes to drive! haaaaaaaaaaaa
