The war in Afghanistan is not “popular” anymore. It is not really considered…what did President Obama call it once….the “Good War”, so the mainstream media is not really there to bring you images and stories from the front.
Thank God we still have independent journalists and bloggers like my good friend Mark Seavey from the American Legion “The Burn Pit” blog who are willing and able to go there and bring some of the stories back.
Unlike some who wish they were there (instead of other places like Thailand), Mark spent a good month on the ground with the Black Knights of 3-66 Armor and was able to bring some of those stories back.
Here is a little video he has put together of images and videos he took while there.
