And the subject should read 14 Sep since 16 Sep is still another 48 hours away - I haven't had much sleep lol.

Re: Update Number *Twelve* from my Afghan Deployment (16 Sep)

Oh man...these are really good. I can't wait to look through all of them tomorrow when I have more time. The forums are going crazy with intense threads about all the new cameras announced... And this is easily the best thread I've looked at on DPR in the past 4 days.
Thank you for sharing these, as well as your service.
Stay frosty,
Brian

It's not simply the pictures but you have a story to tell and you come out as a great man through them.

For some reason I don'd see your previous photos on that site.

Do you happened to have an online gallery?

I have the same problem apparently due to Skimlinks which takes the links from the poster and directs them to ads.

Re: Update Number *Twelve* from my Afghan Deployment (16 Sep)

Unfortunately it seems that the picture links are all broken. I enjoyed your commentary though, you seem very wise and thoughtful for someone still in his 20s. It's been my observation that men and women who have actually seen war up close have a lot more objective and nuanced view of the world than the old men who send them to fight. Since you have the images and stories to tell, you should consider publishing a book!

Re: Update Number *Twelve* from my Afghan Deployment (16 Sep)

Thank you all very much - I really appreciate it

Regarding the inability to view pictures - I promise they are still up and are not ads - use a different browser. Firefox's latest version has been having TONS of issues lately displaying images. Again, they are there, I can assure you

Thanks again, I very much appreciate your compliments. It means a lot

Firefox doesn't work but IE does

I couldn't get the pics to display in Firefox either but in Internet Explorer it works fine - you just have to agree to 'show remote content'.

Fascinating photojournalism and a really interesting blog... thanks Heie keep up the good work, in all senses.

Best wishes

Thanks, Mike - appreciate your compliments.

Also, I really don't know what the issue is with Firefox, but it's very frustrating...

And I have no issues with IE. Weird....
