Local lumber critical for buildup in Afghanistan

2/8/2010 - A 376th Expeditionary Security Forces Squadron Airman allows a Kyrgyz lumber supplier through the front gate of the Transit Center at Manas, Kyrgyzstan, Feb 3, 2010. The 376th Expeditionary Contracting Squadron here purchased more than 13,000 pieces of lumber - the local company's entire stock - to ship to Afghanistan for base buildup. This massive transfer will boost the local economy and help coalition forces downrange. The project was made possible through the collaborative efforts of contracting, security forces, civil engineers, aerial porters, logistics, and many other support agencies on the Transit Center. Look for an upcoming story on the start-to-finish process. (U.S. Air Force photo/Senior Airman Nichelle Anderson/released)
