“[T]he United States military brought our full weight to bear in support of our government’s response to contain the Ebola virus in Liberia,” US Army Major General Gary Volesky said.

Volesky explained that the US military established in Liberia four Ebola mobile testing labs and treatment centers, and trained 1500 healthcare workers. All construction tasks, healthcare worker training and logistical sustainment operations to contain Ebola have been transitioned to reliable partners, he added.

The logistics bases were built to allow for closer access to supplies to continually supply the Ebola testing lab operations and Ebola treatment units, according to the statement.

The US 101st Airborne division is based in Fort Campbell, Kentucky, and its component in Liberia was comprised of engineers, medical personnel, logisticians, and other specialties, the statement said.
