Moon over Afghanistan


15 October 2011
Nimroz Province, Afghanistan

This image was made several months back in Kabul, I believe.  The moon looks similar these nights out here near the Iranian border.

Each evening, I wonder if the military will take seriously the deficiencies in our medical evacuation policies in Afghanistan.  Lives of service members are being sacrificed due to poor military policymaking.

If you have not read RED AIR, please do, and forward it far and wide.

Have a great weekend.
