On The Ground in Kabul

Just a brief post. I'm doing some of my in-processing. On the ground at the airport around 11:00 Kabul time. In the safe house by noon. First thing I was issued as I got in the SUV was body armor.

I took some pictures and a couple little movies on the road. Hopefully some will work out and I'll get them posted soon. My cell phone gets better reception in my safe house than I get at home...even from the basement. Back to work!

I hope you're wearing that body armor.

Thanks guys...and girl... ;)

Yep, we wear the body armor anytime we are "out among them". Generally we don't feel threatened, but complacency is the biggest danger.

I am finding the Afghans in Kabul to be very friendly and helpful.
