Good US units for journalists to visit in Afghanistan?

#1
Currently trying to find a good embed location for someone. If you know a unit that sees a lot of action, deserves media attention and would look "sexy" in the eyes of the journalist's editor, then please let me know.

Yep, but I think he doesn't know which front line. The gist of it seems to be that a lot of the popular units - Paras, Marines - are getting most of the attention, and he wants to go somewhere else. I'm off to Kabul myself soon, but not soon enough to give him a decent sight picture before he leaves on the assignment.

Well, there are US troops in Kandahar and Helmand. There's no shortage of pretty explosions down there.

How about with an EOD Unit, defusing IEDs? :wink:

This has got to be a waaaahhh, yes? If it is, I declare myself a mong. If it is not, I can only despair - is this really what some in the press have sunk to?

You know, I think that's a really good one. I'll put it to him. Knowing a specific unit would be a good idea, but he can just ask the PAO in Kabul for that.

And yes, King_of_the_Burpas, this is a wind up. Waaaah.
