PANJSHIR PROVINCE, Afghanistan -- U.S. Army Lt. Col. Jeffrey Casada, Kentucky National Guard Agribusiness Development Team Leader and London, Ky., native, and U.S. Army Staff Sgt. Joshua Hancock, ADT member and Monticello, Ky., native, both members of the Panjshir Provincial Reconstruction Team, speak to a local Afghan who designed and built his own fish farm in the village of Duabi, in the Paryan District of Panjshir, without any financial assistance. The mission of the Panjshir PRT is to assist with projects that foster economic growth and development, which is the backbone of a self-sustaining economy. The Panjshir PRT hopes to see more independently funded projects in the future. (Photo by U.S. Air Force Tech. Sgt. Sean Mateo White, Panjshir PRT Public Affairs)
