oops – let me clarify & give a few random pictures to look at


Click an image to see it full-size:

I think I caused some confusion with my last post & I need to clear it up.

Last night before I went to bed I published the post the final few.  I meant it was the last of my pictures from Al Masaak, not from Afghanistan.

I have 1 week left in country before I start the long, slow movement back to the States.

I do plan to continue to post over the course of my last week here & as connectivity allows, on my journey west.  Once I reach the States, I will see how things are before deciding how much I will post.

So, there is at least 1 more week of Afghanistan from me…maybe I will try to write something as photo ops at Apache just are not that exciting to me.

Thanks for looking & following along on my journey, I truly appreciate it.

  1. Thanks for clarifying. I love these photos of comradeship between soldiers of different nations and the respect for civilian populations from other countries.

    Dan-
    this little collection of photos seems to sum up so much of what I now understand Afghanstan. the children innocently holding hands, the beautiful clothing, the amazing nature, and the machine guns and razor wire.
    I would have only imagined the razor wire and guns and left it as a barren war zone in my mind.
    as I have followed your postings and photos, I have also done some reading about the region and the people. thank you for sharing the “rest” of the war with me.
    travel safely and I’m so glad you get to go home soon!
    Jen

      The war isn’t anything like you see on TV or are lead to believe by the typical war reporting. It would best be descirbed as pockets of action with a direct effect (i.e. destruction) on little slices of the country.
      Thanks for reading!
