Massive cleanup initiative creates space, recoups taxpayer’s money

These broken support systems for stretchers and other scrap materials and coalition forces equipment were part of the more than 1 million pound collection turned over to the Defense Reutilization and Management Office at the Todd Maritime Services International yard in Kabul, Afghanistan, in July and August of 2012. The materials were collected and sold to local contractors to save U.S. taxpayers money. The Deputy Command of Support Operations under NATO Training Mission Afghanistan leaders also hope that they showed a success story to their Afghan partners with this operation. NATO Training Mission-Afghanistan is a coalition of 38 troop-contributing nations charged with assisting the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan in generating a capable and sustainable Afghan National Security Force ready to take lead of their country's security by 2014.
