I've received a few more emails. It seems I won't be flying into Kabul as I planned but directly into Camp Bastion in Helmand Province. It is the Britsh stronghold and has one of the best field hospitals in the world and it is where the Leatherneck Marine Division is which is where I will be embedded.
I'm thinking I've hit the jackpot here. In my two weeks in country I will be able to visit almost all facets of wartime life. I will have access to British, US, Afghan and captured troops. Plus I'll even get to eat at Pizza Hut.
