Approximately 37 spouses were transported to Range 215 to meet Afghan role-players still immersed in the customs and traditions of their land.
“A lot of what we do must seem incomprehensible to the spouses,” said Col. Andrew Kennedy, director, TTECG. “This opportunity arose to allow the spouses to come and experience a day in the life. We set up something similar to what their husbands will see overseas.”
Key aspects of everyday Afghan life were re-created before the group’s eyes, such as moments of prayer, and the spouses took the opportunity to ask Afghan women about their customs.
