A Cry in the Night

Air Force Capt. Dawn Russell, a physicians assistant assigned to Provincial Reconstruction Team (PRT) Zabul, treats an injured Afghan boy while PRT personnel hold flashlights at Forward Operating Base Smart, June 9. The patient was transported to FOB Smart from Zabul Provincial Hospital after an improvised explosive device detonated, injuring two Afghan children. Both were evacuated by helicopter for further medical care.

PRTs, consisting of military officers, diplomats, and experts from U.S. civilian agencies like the departments of State, Agriculture or Justice, work to help  local governments to govern their constituents more effectively.
