Hey, Look What the Americans Brought!
"Yes, Waheed, the food and clothing is most welcome"
"Oh, yes, that too. But I was talking about this newspaper!"
Every two weeks we printed up a Dari/Pashto/English newspaper, in full color, named Peace. Good source for regional Afghan news and info, and a little about what the Coalition was doing too. Ironically, the main reason people wanted it, was to use as a language study tool. I remember our Information Operations Officer being asked by the Governor of Parwan Province - "Can I have 4000 copies every time you print the paper, to give to schools to use?" Considering we printed about 8,000 (at that time) for the whole country, you can imagine the look on his face. Heh.
