Daily Challenges For
Kiwi Soldiers In
Corporal Tony Clark and Lance Corporal Daniel Rosewarne face daily challenges in maintaining the New Zealand Provisional Reconstruction Team vehicles, in the Bamyan Province of Afghanistan. None have been more challenging than the movement of three 34 Division disused trucks from the division compound to the NZPRT base. The vehicles were removed to allow the handover of the 34 Division Headquarters to the local school.
34 AMF Division (Afghan Militia Force) fought against the Taliban before the establishment of Operation Enduring Freedom. The NZ PRT is assisting with the process of disarming, demobilising and reintegrating these groups into the Afghan community.
The current New Zealand contingent (TG Crib V) will be heading home next month after six months in theatre. The next New Zealand contingent (TG Crib VI) will depart for Afghanistan later this month to start their handover.
