Afghanistan Through My Eyes - 1 year later

Wow...I can't believe it's been an entire year since I started this project and amazing adventure. Last year on New Year's Eve I remember riding the escalator down while watching fireworks explode through the windows of the Dubai Airport.

So far it's been a fantastic journey. I have learned so much and met so many incredible people. I understand what it means to go to war and why we as a country need to support our military more than ever. I don't understand why stating this fact always gets me in hot water with politics. Supporting our men and women in the combat zone has nothing to do with politics. It has to do with respecting what someone has chosen to do. They are risking all for what they believe. YOU have to respect this no matter what your politics.

As I sit here in Viet Nam, with mixed emotions I salute all who have served...of course I can't actually salute as I'm not in the military, but I think you get the point.

I do believe that war is not the answer...especially after touring Viet Nam. The juxtaposition makes my head hurt.

But regardless...Afghanistan continues.

To all...have a great 2012. Make it count.
