NORFOLK, Va. — Navy Petty Officer 3rd Class Anthony E. Pall, son of Angela Garcia of Elizabeth, is deploying in support of Operation Enduring Freedom as part of a Provincial Reconstruction Team.
Mountainous terrain, soaring temperatures, hostile forces and foreign culture face Provincial Reconstruction Team Kunar as they deploy to Afghanistan this summer.
PRTs play a vital role in NATO’s counter-insurgency and stabilization mission in Afghanistan. While conventional forces face the insurgent threat head-on, PRTs interface with local government and people to help them build their security and basic services.
The mission of PRT Kunar is to enhance the effectiveness of Afghan governance in Kunar Province, Afghanistan. The team mentors their Afghan partners at the local and regional levels to help develop relationships with the government and local people and build a trust that is vital to the future of Afghanistan.
Pall, a master at arms with three years of military service, is regularly assigned to the Expeditionary Combat Readiness Center, Norfolk, Va. The petty officer third class graduated in 2005 from Union County Vocational-Technical High School, Elizabeth, and received an associate degree in 2007 from The Chubb Institute, Jersey City.
