This is likely to be the only time i post on here as im only tryin to educate myself. Im not a soldier although i would have loved to have been and tried signin up last year but my health stopped me from doing so and plus i dont think my OH who is in the Marines would like it too much. Anyway what id like to know is what its like out in afghan? i agree with what some of you have said about civvies not understanding and i probably never will get my head around it but im tryin to understand what its like out there and what faces my OH when he goes out there in september. it sounds daft but the more i know the less i worry, i think its the being kept in the dark that makes me worry more and its not like the media show much. i would ask my OH these questions but this is his first tour of afghan so he cant really answer them, hes done 3 tours of Iraq and was there for Telic 1 and has talked about that a lil bit but i was wondering are the hostilities of afghan the same as that? Thanks in advance for your help.
