Cover: One of the great challenges of military operations in Afghanistan has been supporting U.S. and coalition units based at remote, often hard-to-reach locations dispersed across the country’s landscape of rugged mountains and trackless deserts. Yet Afghanistan’s lack of modern infrastructure, including its poor or nonexistent roads, and the continual threat of attack by insurgents and terrorists have often made the use of truck convoys—so characteristic of sustainment in Iraq—impractical, if not dangerous. In such a difficult military environment, aerial delivery of supplies has become a major feature of operations. The articles beginning on pages 23, 26, and 29 highlight aerial resupply in Afghanistan. On the cover, a Soldier with one of the logistics units deployed in Afghanistan—the 824th Quartermaster Company (Aerial Delivery)—loads a container delivery system bundle of food onto a C–17 transport.
