    Great photojournalism! We in the states really don't understand what our troops face every day! Anderson, next to your work during Katrina, this is probably one of my favorite reports you've done. Great work!

    Any fabric uniform changes available that could to be cooler in the hot temperatures ? When are the builder's for a comfortable base and living conditions going to begin ? We build back cities blown up and pay for that but our troops in Afghan are living like that ? Not acceptable !

    Bless you Tim Hetherington for bringing the human side of this into focus. Perspective is what we need. 'Caught in the middle' indeed...as a parent I feel for anyone who has to reach hard for the basic needs of their children. We need to see more of the human side of this conflict. Not everyone is the enemy. Thank you for your insight. Godspeed and keep your head down.

    To find comfort in half truths is a long shot for anyone.. But to an American Soldier a scoop of peanut butter is like that magic carpet in the desert that can take em home anytime. Viva las Borak Obama? South Central LA awaits you…?! So does Texas; Arizona; Pennsylvania; Chicago.. All America.. All America.. Just tell them Afghani what they are missing before coming home.

    When the thought arises as to how far you actually are from home surfaces it can have a petrifying effect. When you realize that even if you wanted to go home, this very instant, and you could, the fact that it would still take DAYS to get state side is a sobering one. 'Find your happy place pal – your not going anywhere for sometime." It makes coming home a truly wonderful experience.

    Wonderful photographs. Your art work tells a story through still pictures that is so rich one could almost feel the landscape of the country.

    I so appreciate your reports! My son is Army Special Ops and either can't or won't answer the most simple of questions.

    Neat slideshow and great pictures. It does seem like the dust is just everywhere.....I don't see how the people put up with that but unfortunately it looks like they are used to it (or resigned to it). Thanks for sharing your pictures.
