Well I did say a few days ago that I would be making a statement about some news I had, so I wont be keeping you in the dark anymore and the suspense will be lifted.
Well the Army moves so fast these days regardless of where you are serving in the world, life continues, people come and go and so does your career. So i’m sorry to say that from the end of June, Project Afghan will come to and end (or maybe a new start?), my career is taking me back to the UK and onto another adventure in my life, to pastures greener and slightly cooler than i’ve been used to. I cant give you the exact date of when I leave but what I thought would be 6 months at war is now going to be 3 months at war and the days are slowly being counted down.
So with my time coming to an end, I will continue to add as many blog posts as and when I come into contact with the Internet, I will continue to show you around the lives we lead out here in Afghanistan, show you the men and women who share their lives with the sun and sand each day, the people of Afghanistan, from local tribal people to the Afghan Security Forces and the messages to loved ones back home from the men and women I work with. Each blog post will still mean as much to me as the first and I will work to ensure that I cover as much as possible as I count down my last few days.
So for now, the month of June is full of more adventures, excitement, photographic memories and fleeting encounters with our enemy, so I hope you have enjoyed our journey so far, so sit back, hold on tight and let the month of June evolve as I capture Afghanistan in 2012 for one last time.
Regards Project Afghan.
