US soldiers at KAF/A’stan 2009/copyright smsteele
our man in KAF just wrote to tell me that today is a sad day in KAF…YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST Pizza Hut, Burger King and Subway are all closing tonight. and while this may seem slightly amusing to us here, over there I’ve seen the look on soldiers’ faces as they bite into their first bit of non-army food, esp. after being outside the wire for months, and it’s not just junk food their consuming, it’s a taste of home. a taste of normal.
this young one who writes from KAF is coming to an end of his tour pdq. Ill miss him. he keeps me laughing. I’ll miss his emails which I open first thing in the morning b’cause I need all the laughs I can get. I’ll miss all of their emails and FB messages and phone calls etc. once this project is done (soon).
