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 is some great first-hand footage from Kajaki, Afghanistan of our mighty US Marines in the fight and what they deal with day in and day out.

I enjoyed your footage. I appreciate everything our soldiers do!! War is devastating and casualties would be so hard to cope with seeing first hand. I am praying for you all!
