The idea behind Project Afghan is to allow you the follower a front seat view through our eyes and my camera, a day by day blog account of the life of a front line infantry soldier whilst serving in Afghanistan.
But followers must be aware it’s not about the blood and guts of war, it’s about a life a soldier leads, it’s about the people he’s protecting and in this case the people of Afghanistan. So followers need to be aware of the fact it’s about the people and not the glory of war.
I also protect the interests of security along with the names and locations of people you see and places we work and serve, so please also be aware of the lack of information as to dates, times, names, equipment and so on when the daily blog is posted.
The vast majority of images are taken and used as a collection of images for future posts, some of the blog posts will be posted as they happen, some are images and stories from days to weeks gone past.
But each post has its own story, it’s own pain and reflects a part of a soldiers life in Afghanistan. I hope you can appreciate the need for this post and can understand some of the constraints I place myself under.
Please also be aware that while we are now able to enjoy some time away from work before our deployment, I will be taking a short break away from blogging and to say i’ll be seeing you all soon and thanks for following.
Regards Project Afghan.
