Distinguished Service Decoration
Colonel John BOSWELL deployed to Afghanistan in April 2010 as the Commanding Officer of the New Zealand Provincial Reconstruction Team (NZPRT) in Bamyan. He initiated the development of a strategic plan to transition from a military led operation to a civilian led and finally Afghan managed operation. The first stage of the transition occurred in June 2010, when leadership of the NZPRT passed to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade with the appointment of a civilian director, without disruption to ongoing operations.
