A Fort Knox logistics unit is training now in preparation for a nine-month deployment to Afghanistan in 2012. Although about 250 people will deploy as part of the 3rd ESC unit, its charges will actually number from 5,000 to 7,000 people, composed of military, government civilians and contractors. The unit will fuel and feed forces, transport supplies and repair equipment.
