A Good Week

This has been an interesting week. In the course of a few days, I have seen a bit more of the country, as shown in some of the recent pictures. I also attended meetings with the Deputy Defense Minister and the Chief of Staff of the Afghan National Army. They both expressed gratitude for the ongoing work being done by our Department of Defense in rebuilding the Afghan Army. It's weeks like this and the visible progress being made that make this trip seem worthwhile.
Progress is being made here. Everyone who has been associated with Operation Enduring Freedom since the early days has remarked that the level of bustle, and evidence of commerce has increased in the last two years. It is quite an opportunity to witness and participate in the rebirth of a nation.
Even after I return to Tampa from this trip, I will still be working on important issues regarding the future of Afghanistan. Stay tuned for more.

Wow ... thanks for sharing! Paula
