Camp Dwyer is military base in Afghanistan

Camp Dwyer was built by the United States in Afghanistan as a result of the long standing relationship between these two countries. The United States moves to assist Afghanistan in warfare and military installations, while it also uses it during for its own purpose. It is fully equipped to serve as a marine base. It was built in the Helmand River Valley, a place commonly referred to the troops as “Hell man” due to its harsh weather conditions. The weather is usually hot, with temperatures reaching extreme values. The base is mostly commanded by the United States Marine and is operated as a store for logistics and living quarters for a number of troops.  A lot of United States military personnel have been killed in this region and are remembered by inscribing their names on metallic nametags that are hand on a tree at the entrance to the facility. The camp is in a secluded region with no nearby towns or cities, perhaps due to the harsh conditions.
