PRT commanders share work experience

FARAH, Afghanistan – Provincial reconstruction team commanders from Ghowr and Farah provinces met June 26-28 to improve the effectiveness of their PRTs by sharing work experiences.

Col. Dalius Polekauskas, PRT Chaghcharan commander, and Cmdr. Frank E. Hughlett, PRT Farah commander, lead PRTs dealing with similar challenges in ISAF's Regional Command West.

Together the commanders discussed security, development and reconstruction—the focus of their day-to-day work in the provinces.  They also visited a soon-to-be completed orphanage in Farah city and Khormaleq village, where a new clinic built by PRT Farah will open soon.

RC-West Commander Brig. Gen. Antonio Satta recently instituted a program by which his leaders could exchanged ideas to improve their overall knowledge and promote best reconstruction and development practices.
