Check out the full photo sets over at The Atlantic and a similar one at The Big Picture.
Most of the time when I see pictures of Afghanistan I think “Wow that really looks like it sucks there”. I see it’s winter there now though, and it appears to suck even more than usual.
yeah…..you are right about the sucking part.
Yup. Still wondering why the hell I volunteered for another tour this fall…
Awesome posts as usual, Mike. I’ve got something to throw out to the community here. I’ve got a friend, named Adam, who did two tours in Afghanistan and recently was sent to South Korea. He has recently developed some sort of extreme stuttering problem and has been medically discharged (I think. The details are still kinda iffy). If anyone here knows anything about this or any other soldiers out there in the many sand boxes please let me know. It’s really strange and he’s getting great medical help but any info and of course prayers is always helpful.
Actually, it’s the same season there as it is here. Even up where I used to live at around 6k ft, it was getting warm this time last year. When the weather finally heated all the way up in April, we got hit just about every day. April was also when we started taking casualties. Glad I’m here (and turning in my ETS packet soon) and not over there.
