About the Author:

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers - Transatlantic Afghanistan District (TAA) was organized on July 9, 2013, by merging the former USACE Afghanistan District North and Afghanistan District South. Since that time, TAA has directly supported the International Security Assistance Force and Resolute Support missions by executing construction for Afghan National Security Forces, Military Construction, the Afghan Infrastructure Fund program, and the Commander’s Emergency Response Program. During TAA’s tenure the district has delivered quality facilities for the Afghan National Army and Police, critical civil infrastructure for the Afghan government, and basic engineering and construction services supporting healthcare, transportation, and education infrastructure for local communities that provide sustainable development projects for the Afghan people that employ the populace, build skilled human capital, and promote the future stability of Afghanistan.
