Afghanistan Through My Eyes - geotagging

I've put my ticket on hold, but still haven't gotten the confirmation. I also don't know if I'll be flying into Kabul now that I may be embedding closer to Bagram Airfield. I hope they explain what I'll need to do and how I'm supposed to get there in more detail.

My daughter sent me this amazing email about geotagging. Apparently, all of our cell phones will show exactly where we are if we take a picture and post it to a social network unless we turn off that feature. It's in your general settings. Turn off the location services feature. Of course if you want to be tracked leave it on.

It is very important for anyone in a war zone to have this feature turned off.
