I couldn’t find anything more about this on FBO. Hell, I couldn’t even find the task order. I did find my old post about AFRICAP and all of the folks involved, but that is the last I have heard about it.
This latest deal for the Congo will be quite the contract. That place is definitely a hardship tour, but it also fits in with DynCorp’s future leaning statement the other day. –Matt
