    Red Bulls came in, ready to get it done, as I was leaving … very professional and a friendly bunch of soldiers. Funny how Parwan is so easy to recognize, through its dirt!

    Man, looking at that picture I can’t even imagine what it must be like to be stationed there any length of time. It takes a stronger man than me, that’s for sure.

    Awesome blog! I was in the Navy and spent some time in the Gulf, but nothing like this. Thank you to all the soldiers who served in the past and continue to serve and protect overseas.

    Look at the surroundings, there’s literally nothing around. That’s gotta be a tough job and something I and everyone truly must respect.

    Very good picture. I wouldn’t be so calm like this soldier, if I was in his place :) Thanks for sharing.
