Short Term, Long Term

The link below takes you to a Stars and Stripes article by the reporter who covered my unit for some time and in some detail last summer. This article describes the problems facing our Army as we try to train the Afghan National Security Forces to become competent and self-sustaining.  Though not everything here-in was exactly like I encountered in Khowst and Paktya provinces, I’ll vouch for its overall accuracy.

    Hey Pete,

    Interesting article. I’m not sure what I think about the final lines of the article: “It’s my job to trust them.”

    Back to grading and then off to the Gulf Coast in a few days for a Transparent Christmas–rain instead of snow!

    Best,
    Chris
