The Baba Shrine Well has been completed in Mehtar Lam. The Baba Shrine is located near what is believed to be the original settlement of Mehtar Lam and is heavily visited by locals. This well will provide much needed clean drinking water to the visitors. It was nominated by the locals through the government and completed on time by a local contractor. TF Wildhorse is completing and has completed several wells in and around Laghman that are similar to this project.

I apologize for not having this up a day earlier but I had a few technical difficulties to work out. We had an outstanding Thanksgiving dinner prepared by our government contracted staff consisting of plenty of turkey, ham, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce and the works. The meals were served by Wildhorse staff officers and senior non-commissioned officers as a way to give thanks to the soldiers here. Most soldiers took it pretty easy with afternoon movies and relaxation. Chaplain Woomer, the newly arrived Wildhorse chaplain, and SGT Harvey, the chaplain's assistant, gave an outstanding service in the evening that focused on giving thanks for all that we have, especially for our country, constitution, freedoms that we enjoy, and the sacrifices that have been made to ensure that this remains. SGT Harvey made a very impressive reference by citing the entire Gettysburg address by memory. I posted a few pictures of staff officers and NCOs serving the soldiers and some of the soldiers enjoying dinner.
