Our people in the fighting tell their stories better than anyone. This photo-essay just came to me from Afghanistan. Our soldiers are not professional writers, nor photographers, but they are very good at what they do. The rawness and simplicity of this powerful essay rings truer than any of us writers/photographers seem to be able to capture. It also reminds me of why I am so happy to be in the United States, away from the fighting, and how much I distress about not covering our people when they are in need.
