Private William Sims of the Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) in Afghanistan secures a Bamyan airfield as a C-130 Hercules comes in to land.
Private Sims is a member of an eight-man Quick Reaction Force (QRF), tasked with keeping members of the PRT safe.
The QRF works with local police and interpreters to process all workers, guests and NZDF personnel moving in and out of Kiwi Base. The QFR also responds to incidents within the local area.
