Operation Enduring Freedom Facilities
Since the 11 September 2001 attacks, the US military has deployed to 13 locations in nine countries near Afghanistan. More than 2,000 civil engineers deployed to the region building and maintaining bases. Including additional deployments in Bulgaria, Turkey, and Kuwait, by early 2002 over 60,000 US troops were deployed at these forward bases, and hundreds of aircraft were flying from expeditionary airfields.
