Barge Matal, Afghanistan – Afghan National Police troops wade through knee-high water to reach Mi-17 helicopters that will transport them back to their homes as part of a combat resupply mission in Barge Matal in the northern Kunar Valley March 10. The Afghan Air Force worked in cooperation with the Ministry of the Interior and coalition forces to complete the mission, using ten aircraft to deliver over 9,000 kilograms of weapons, ammunition and food to Afghan National Police stationed in the remote post that is seen as vital by Afghan officials due to its proximity to Pakistan and history of insurgent activity. Following the supply drop-off, forces loaded over 80 ANP bound for their respective homes following a three to six month deployment to the region.
