Reconstruction forces in Langham province

U.S. Army soldiers along with Afghan National Army and International Security Assistance Forces recently traveled through the Laghman province, meeting with villagers, inspecting schools and conducting security patrols. To help stabilize the region, the team's mission is to help encourage the local population to participate with their provincial government as well as build and repair the local infrastructure.

The eastern Afghanistan provinceā€˜s economy was destroyed during the war with the Soviet Union, but it has growing agricultural and mining industries.
