Welcome Home Lieutenant Brian P. Rowan!!

Conicelli Autoplex wants to recognize Brian Rowan, U.S. Army 2nd Lt., for his contributions to Operation Enduring Freedom while serving in Afghanistan for the past 6 months. He is arriving home today, October 25th, 2010, for some much needed rest and relaxation with his friends and family for 2 weeks before heading back for another 6 months.

Rowan is a 2nd Lieutenant in the U.S. Army and platoon leader of Support Platoon, Headquarters and Headquarters Company, 1st Special Troops Battalion, Task Force Spartan, native of Langhorne, Pa, and West Point Class of '09 Graduate.

One of his platoon's primary roles is to train the Afghan National Police and Afghan National Army along with the continued efforts to partner, advise and assist in developing the government of Afghanistan through projects and daily interaction.

His unit oversees all issues within the Behsood District of Nangarhar Province. Along with daily missions to villages within the district, they also conduct overnight missions at the ANP station to increase security, train the ANP, and conduct combined patrols. These missions enable other brigade advisors in the areas of legal, engineering and governance, spending more than 18 hours per week at the district centers strictly on these matters alone. 

Brian Rowan, platoon leader, interacts with the village maliks regularly. “Our platoon is very fortunate to be able to work with the people of the Behsood District. Everyone is very hospitable and friendly toward us when we visit the different villages.”

The progress in the most populated district in Nangarhar Province is a direct reflection of the hard work of Support Platoon Soldiers with the Government of Afghanistan leaders to ensure a better future for the people of this country.
