God go with you Jason, and "THANKS"
for your service and sacrifice for a free Afghanistan and a free America. I appreciate what you're doing and . . . by the way:
"Get some" for this ol' Navy CTI!!
| || Typical public market . . . it's not that much different from those I saw in Guatemala and El Salvador
|| || Making friends with a "local" in the marketplace.
| ||Jason touching the merchandise.
|| ||Troops getting ready to jump into action.
|Jason standing guard duty. . .the most boring of duties, unless there's an attack on the compound.
|| || Looks like an M60 -- throws a lota lead real fast at the enemy!
| ||An eerie night sky. . . .
||Soldiers' barracks. . .notice the air conditioners trying to keep the Afghan heat down to a low boil inside those canvas tents.
| || Hitting the rack for some well-deserved rest.
|| It sure ain't Charmin . . . notice the "bumpy" surface, ensuring a "non-soft 'n non-smooth" wiping experience.
| || A country estate? It looks like adobe construction to me -- it works just fine in Mexico with its dry climate -- and it lasts almost forever in dry climes.
||All the children of the world are cute and cuddly -- no matter the culture
| ||For those fortunate enough to have a propane stove to cook on, here's where they get their gas.
|| At the crossroads of time with respect to transportation: the old "meets" the new. . . .
| || Not everyone has money enough for motorized transport.
||This is as close as you ever want to get to one of these smelly, evil-tempered, biting and spitting animals.
