How’s your train up for Afghanistan going?

Not so hot?

Pretty good?

Wonder what equipment you should take?   

Well, four of us from the blog world have banded together to establish a new blog called Afghan Lessons Learned to answer those questions for you.  Bouhammer, Bill and Bob’s Excellent Afghan Adventure, War on Terror News and I want to help get you that information.

After discussing the issue the four of us agreed that there wasn’t a site accessible to everyone with the information needed to prepare for Afghanistan. We also all agreed that some of what the Army is teaching is just pure and utter BS. Like telling people not to drink Chai. What the…?

Thus, A.L.L. came into being.  We want to make this a one-stop shop for open source info on culture, equipment, COIN, FOB reviews and anything else we can think of or you think you may need. The rest of the guys have been here and had very successful tours and I’m still here, so we have plenty of info.

All of us are senior NCOs or officers and we’ll give you the no BS answer to your questions as long as it doesn’t violate OPSEC.

So, if you’re deploying to Afghanistan or know someone who is, please pass word about the site along to them.

Good luck, good hunting and VAMPIRE!
