Gettin it done in 'Ghani

From the DoD newswire,
"Coalition special operations forces raided two anti-coalition compounds and captured two top regional enemy leaders in pre- dawn missions June 26 in southern Afghanistan, a news release from the coalition military command reported today."

There's nothing but good news in this article. Here's some:

"In the release, Combined Forces Command Afghanistan officials said that in areas where anti-coalition forces have been removed over the past year, Combined Joint Special Operations Task Force A has spent almost $1.5 million to build schools, wells, clinics, roads and mosques to improve the quality of life for Afghans looking to the future.
More than 1,000 Afghan patients receive weekly medical care from coalition special operations medics and attached special ops personnel, including Civil Affairs doctors and physician assistants based in remote village areas in Afghanistan, the news release added"

Here's more:

"More than 4.5 million Afghans have registered to vote, accpording to the coalition statement. The region attacked is second only to the region around the national capital of Kabul in voter registration, with close to 600,000 registered voters, 35 percent of whom are women, the statement added. "

and more:

"The Kabul Military Hospital has upgraded the medical care it provides to its patients, thanks to a multi-million dollar donation of modern equipment by the United States.
The 400-bed hospital, also known as the Chahar Sad Bastari Hospital, received 400 new beds, carts, intravenous stands, X-ray machines, film processors, six new anesthesia machines, an ultrasound machine, a defibrillator and patient monitors. Medical specialists from the United States, Turkey and Denmark are training the Afghan hospital staff on these new items of equipment. "

This is why we're there, to make the lives of the people of those countries better, to give them and their children hope for the future, to provide jobs and medical care and security so that they may build a fruitful, free, happy life that everyone deserves.
