Now THIS makes me Happy!
I read this (thanks to the ever observant Barcepundit, Franco Aleman) and I couldn't help but cheer up. I would like to think that (at least in Parwan, Kapisa and Kabul) my unit's efforts had a little bit to do with this. But in the end, all I care about is that the people in Afghanistan are moving forward.
