$1 Billion Worth Of US Property Has Been Donated...And You Won't Believe Where It Went!

So between January 2010 and February 2015, our Defense Department has donated almost a billion dollars worth of property to the Afghan government? Yeah, you read that right, apparently through the transition of military bases that have been operated in Afghanistan, we have handed over about $858 million of real property.

According to Stars and Stripes:

The former bases, ranging from small, tactical combat outposts to large operational bases, cannot be sold to the government of Afghanistan, the Special Inspector General for Afghanistan Reconstruction said in a fact sheet.
If it is not transferred to another military department or federal agency, it can be abandoned, dismantled or donated. Transferring the property to the Afghan government is more cost effective than the other options in most cases, Christine Abizaid, deputy assistant secretary of defense for Afghanistan, Pakistan and Central Asia, wrote in a letter attached to the report.

 

As of right now, 57% percent of America’s previously owned property has been turned over to the government of Afghanistan, and 30% went to the Afghan National Police.

12 U.S. operated bases remain open. Is this good news or bad news? Tell us what you think!

Healing Heroes Network (HHN) has been providing financial assistance to our veterans since 2008. As a non-profit organization, HHN's primary focus is to provide the means for wounded warriors to get the treatment and therapies they deserve and need.

Along with sweepstakes advertised at Hero Giveaway, HHN solely relies on the graciousness of their followers on Facebook through donations, merchandise, and entries to HG's giveaways.

Thanks for your continued support for our troops. For more information, and to donate to the cause, click the link below!
