The Sandbox

GWOT hot wash, straight from the wire

Welcome to The Sandbox, a forum for service members who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned vets, spouses and caregivers. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship (go to our Blowback page for that), but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. All correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted, lightly edited. If you know someone who is deployed who might have something to say, please tell them about us.

Here are a couple of great videos I stumbled upon, from the 508th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 82nd Airborne Division.The first one is an eclectic mix of pictures, video, battlefield sounds and music that these guys put together to capture their year in Afghanistan:
