Nowruz: Persian for New Light

I'm excited about going back to Afghanistan in a little less than a month. Although I haven't heard regarding my orders yet. I'm supposedly manifested on the flight in with the 3BCT 25th Division. That will be amazing.

I was reviewing some of my notes and I have 4 pages of names of troops I met. I plan to include every name in my book and wish I could include every story. I hope to hit the 2/3 and follow up with the Marines I was with. They should be packing up or have left the camp with the ANA and only a handful of Marines.

Today is the beginning of the New Year in Afghanistan, Nowruz. I wish the Afghanistan people well and hope they can be united for once in their history against the faction that wants to destroy them. It is going to be so interesting to see how the unrest of the Middle East effects  Afghanistan.
