North Dakota National Guard Sgt. Maj. Rashad Schaffner of Dawson,?N.D., is back home after nine months of very detail-oriented work in Afghanistan.
As part of the NDNG 818th Engineer Company (Sapper), Schaffner and his fellow soldiers cleared roads of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and other obstacles to keep military and local national traffic moving.
The Sappers’ job required a lot of patience.
