    Greetings from Kabul

    I've been reading for a few days now and thought I should finally register. I'm a DoD civilian from Northern Virginia currently posted in Kabul, AF. Current EDC is my SIG M-11 and an M4. I'm working as a mentor to the Afghan National Army and the Ministry of Interior and should be returning home in the Spring.

    Regards, DP

    Welcome from the Richmond area.
    Freedom doesn't come free. It is bought and paid for by the lives and blood of our men and women in uniform.

    Welcome from missouri. I spent about 18 months in and around Kabul, not exactly a dream vacation.

    It would be if it wasn't for the land mines and ACMs... There were so many times in the mountainous region that we'd stop, look around and say Wow, it's beautiful here... would be a wonderful place to hike and camp if it wasn't for the whole 30 plus years of war business.
