Split Second Stories: Afghanistan



During the heat of the day, Afghan workers ate their lunches in bunkers and rested. Soldiers took turns guarding them to ensure that they weren’t up to nefarious activities. 

These pictures were taken during one of my husband’s deployments to Afghanistan and show a bit about what life was like there for the soldiers as well as for the Afghans.   Daily Post Photo Challenge

  1. Love the photo of the sheep herders the most because it shows that life somehow goes in even in the midst of war. Thanks for sharing and thanks to your husband for serving us.

    • Thank you! Yes, I like the sheep herding photos as well. I can’t imagine living in a war torn country. And Afghanistan hasn’t seen peace in so long.
