About this blog: Coalition members serving in Afghanistan face HUGE differences in living and working conditions. From the posh courtyard in the International Security Assistance Force Headquarters compound to a shallow pit in Helmand, Afghanistan’s got it all. My experiences were those of a relatively senior officer working at a relatively nice base in Kabul. Your experience may vary.
About me: I’m Clayton Perce, a US Air Force Colonel who spent time in Afghanistan from April 2009-April 2010. I worked closely with Afghan communicators and the US and Coalition forces charged with raising the Afghan National Army and reforming the Afghan National Police. It was by far the toughest job I’ve ever had, but probably the most important too. Please feel free to comment or send me a note … I’m LinkedIn here.
