Military Police Deliver Coats


W


inter months can be long and harsh in Afghanistan. Many children there don’t have


the comfort of blankets, pillows, and jackets to keep them warm when the cold sets in. Soldiers from the 58th Military Police


Company attached to 2nd Brigade Com- bat Team, 4th Infantry Division, decided to have a humanitarian aid drop in Police Sub Station 4, Nov. 22, 2011. The drop was held in the home of an Afghan Uniformed Police offi cer. Female soldiers and Afghan offi cers distributed to Afghan children blankets, pillows, jackets, and shoes that had been donated to the

unit from people back in the U.S. They also passed out notebooks and radios. The radios are a way to connect Afghan


women to government broadcasts with im- portant community services information. More than 80 women and children


were present, and they were very thankful for the warm blankets and clothes. “I like being able to show the commu- nity that we’re here to help them,” says Army Sgt. Brittany Deters (above), a unit supply specialist with the 58th Military Police Company. “This is a positive side to the aftereff ects of war.” — Spc. April York, USA
