As part of DynCorp International’s work in support of the Logistics Civil Augmentation Program (LOGCAP), the Morale, Welfare and Recreation (MWR) team organizes great activities for troops serving in Afghanistan.
Easter at FOB Spin Boldak
On Easter, the dining facilities (DFAC) team at Forward Operating Base (FOB) Spin Boldak brought a taste of home to the resident warfighters with a traditional Easter dinner. The dinner menu included ham, grilled Cornish hens, candied yams, a fruit display and typical Easter basket treats. The dining area was also decorated festively, with spring flowers and linen tablecloths.
Camp Stone’s Feats of Strength
MWR personnel organized a unique bench press competition at Camp Stone. The goal for the competitors was to lift 80 percent of their body weight as many times as they could without raising any part of their body off the weight bench. Winners were divided by division – light weight, middle weight and heavy weight – and earned fun prizes while a mix of soldiers, coalition forces and DI personnel cheered them on.
Activities at FOB Zangabad
The MWR team at FOB Zangabad kept the members of the military who are stationed there entertained in May with a karaoke night, video game tournaments, and their own weight lifting competition.
All members of the military who participated had a great time and expressed their appreciation for the activities.
