Editor's Note: Tuesday night’s AC360° continued to draw viewer response on Anderson’s reporting from Afghanistan. Many wrote to thank Anderson for highlighting the work being done by U.S. Marines in the region. Family members and friends of the soldiers wrote to us, sharing stories and expressing gratitude over this glimpse into the day-to-day life of their loved ones. We welcome your thoughts and comments on this as well:
I greatly appreciate your reports from the ground in Afghanistan. My 19-year-old Marine son will soon be deployed to Afghanistan. Your reporting puts a reality to the situation my son will be facing – danger and all. As a parent, that's the kind of information I am seeking. I don't want my news sugar-coated, I want to see and hear about the realities facing our troops over there. On behalf of my family, please extend our sincere thanks to all of your crew that made this week-long special possible.
My son is serving as a Marine with 1/5 in Afghanistan. Thank you Anderson for giving me a glimpse into his life....
Anderson & Team, Thanks for what you are doing…most people in the US have no idea that America is winning favor & helping the Afghans through this type of service from our military men & women…
I have a son in the 1st Battalion, 5th Marine Regiment … I’m watching every minute hoping to see my son and i pray for all our troops thank you A.C.
Thanks for keeping me informed on situation in Afghanistan, May God protect all of you and keep you safe.
