Everyone should consider military service. The work is ALWAYS full of a sense of pride and accomplishment. No task was ever the same and you will be constantly challenged. One such task was to complete a 1500 foot well at our job site on the kabul international airport Afghanistan. As the crew leader it was my task to set the days work and manage 12 individuals to complete this demanding task. With many different variables and obstacles in the way our team successfully completed our task and the well now provides 60,000 gallons of fresh water a day to our troops and the Afghanistan national army.
