For an excellent blog on dealing with the Afghan Army, this National Guard captain's observations are spot on. Capt. Mark Martin is one of a dozen members of the Minnesota National Guard working as part of a training and liaison team to help make the Afghan Army more independent. They are stationed in northern Afghanistan.
Capt. Martin recently posted about the trucks sitting idle that were featured in a recent Star Tribune series on Afgstanistan.
He found that at least one truck was being used for some purpose. A cat had made a home for itself inside one of the trucks through a broken window.
Don't be surprised if you see Capt. Martin running for elective office some day.
