Still alive, still well
Got about another 2 months to go in what has become a 7.5 month tour in Afghanistan. Going to reserve my comments on just about everything until that time is done: better that way; I think I'll want to be able to speak more freely about some things. Suffice it to say I will look forward to returning to Canada, but also regret the end of what has been a uniquely rewarding experience working among the Afghan National Army. Khuda hafiz.
