We are moving to another province in Afghanistan.
This is an exciting and also sad event. The men have
done an absolutely outstanding job improving the
outpost. It's hard to believe that six months ago,
these were flea-infested stables.
COL Preysler, the 173rd Brigade Commander, visited us
last month to tell us that he intended to move us
because we had won in our area. This is a tremendous
achievement, and we are proud of the men. Now, we are
being asked to start over. The mission is to go to
another part of Afghanistan and win that area too.
2nd PLT will be moving very soon. Please hold all
your mail until we get a new mailing address. Mail
already sent will be collected on Monti, and we'll get
it to 2nd in the future. Erin has the timeline and
will let you know.
Two weeks ago, US paratroopers and ANA soldiers
distributed school supplies to the school-aged girls
of the town of zor Asmar. The supplies were from you
and from our friends that support us.
The zor Asmar girls school consisted of two frame
tents, which were burned down recently by the enemy.
The enemy does not believe that girls should go to
We won a huge victory without firing a single shot.
When I say "we," that's all of us. US paratroopers
and Afghan soldiers distributed school supplies from
Americans to Afghan children. An entire town saw that
the enemy burns down schools, and that Americans and
Afghans bring hope.
Thank you for everything that you do. Take care
