We are moving out of Afghanistan and now attention is turning away from fighting and looking to logistics ahead of the 2014 pull-out. Military planners say this is the largest operation of its kind for the U.S. and a much bigger job than moving out of Iraq.
FOX News Radio's Emily Wither reports:
It might not be the most glamorous job in the U.S. military but this year the logistics guys are in the spotlight as the U.S. begins moving more than a decade's worth of equipment out of Afghanistan.
(Stein) "I mean, we're clearing the battlefield, we're cleaning it up, we're not leaving a mess."
Kurt Stein, Commanding General of the 1st Theater Sustainment Command told FOX News Radio it's a tougher move than Iraq.
(Stein) "We are still fighting there, I mean, Iraq, we were not. I mean, at the end it was all about retrograde."
Afghanistan is a land-locked country and goods can fall prey to Taliban insurgents. Bad weather and difficult terrain also make the main land route through Pakistan a tough one.
