Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Visit FOB Fenty
Members of the Washington Redskins cheerleaders visited Forward Operating Base Fenty, Afghanistan in January 22, 2014 as part of an Armed Forces Entertainment tour. The cheerleaders were hosted by the 4th Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division. In an unrelated story unofficial reports have surfaced that the entire helicopter fleet in the Jalalabad area of operations has been grounded for maintenance issues for several days - presumably starting on the morning of January 22nd. Army personnel from the Aviation Support Brigade of Regional Command East based at Bagram Air Force Base just north of Kabul have released a statement that this high NMC rate is quite unusual and an investigation is ongoing.
