TOUL PREAH KHLAING, Cambodia - Brig. Gen. Jeffrey L. Milhorn, commander of the Pacific Ocean Division (POD), U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, is pictured with a young citizen of the Kingdom of Cambodia. The POD Commander and Col. Christopher Lestochi, Alaska District commander, participated in a ribbon-cutting ceremony Feb. 7 of a new health center in Toul Preah Khlaing, Cambodia. The district managed the renovation of an existing health post as well as the new construction of an additional six rooms, latrines, water tower, solar power and well upgrades in support of the U.S. Pacific Command's Humanitarian Assistance Program. The improvements will transition the post into a full health clinic that will allow for the necessary support to an expanding population in the area. Currently, more than 6,000 people will benefit from the facility. Funded by the U.S. Pacific Command, the total project cost was about $330,000. The project was supported by the Cambodian Ministry of Health and compliments ongoing USAID - US Agency for International Development projects in the area.
