KANDAHAR, Afghanistan - Defense Logistics Agency Disposition Services employees protect the environment by ensuring property turned in by customers is reused or recycled, but DLA Disposition Services employees in Kandahar, Afghanistan, have temporarily taken environmental protection a step further.
When a bird’s nest with two eggs was discovered inside a large box of wire, employees took steps to protect it. The box was marked to prevent any accidental disturbances of the nest and to provide a safe haven for the baby birds, DLA Disposition Services environmental protection specialist Nikisone Leoso wrote in an email.
