Paktia Province, Afghanistan


"The nine-person civil affairs section serves as the face of the Paktia Provincial Reconstruction Team for the provincial government and local people. Cullison's team divides the 14 districts that cover an area about the size of Rhode Island and then reach out to assess the areas and determine what projects will both boost the economy and help legitimize the Afghan government. "

At 2,483 sq mi Paktia Province is much larger than Rhode Island (1,545 sq mi).
