U.S. Military Removing Equipment from Afghanistan

60 planeloads of gear have been removed from the country.

The Pentagon is coordinating the removal or destruction of equipment and gear as the United States military goes through the process of exiting Afghanistan. After 20 years at war in that country, U.S. Central Command is responsible for extracting over 3,000 troops, as well as thousands of U.S. contractors, by the September 11 deadline set by President Biden. At this point, 60 planeloads of gear have been removed from the region.

Chief of war plans and strategy for Army Material Command, Curt Higdon said, “We might move some stuff into Europe, we might move it to some other places within the CENTCOM [area of responsibility], we might move it even to the Indo-[Pacific Command area of responsibility]. We’ll fill gaps. We’ll take the equipment out of [Afghanistan] and start to fill holes.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For U.S. Central Command officials to be effective in repositioning military assets.
  • For wisdom for the Army Material Command chief as he direct removal efforts.
  • For discernment for the Pentagon on the global regions that need the most troop support.
