Soldiers Sort Through Equipment To Be Disposed Of As Afghanistan Drawdown Continues

GARDEZ, AFGHANISTAN - MARCH 22: Soldiers and civilian contractors sort through shipping containers filled with excess equipment and supplies left by departing units as the U.S. draws down manpower in the 13-year-old war on March 22, 2014 near Gardez, Afghanistan. Although some of the material will be put back into the Army supply chain most of it will be destroyed or sold for scrap. In the past year the U.S. Military has been reducing troops and equipment in Afghanistan as it transitions from a role of combatants, fighting alongside Afghan soldiers, to assisting the Afghan National Security Forces in an advisory role. President Obama recently ordered the Pentagon to develop a contingency plan for a complete pullout from Afghanistan by the end of 2014 if Afghanistan President Hamid Karzai or his successor refuses to sign the Bilateral Security Agreement.
