Battlefield Correspondent Writes and Sketches in RC East
I am not sure what Regional Command East is calling itself these days. It might be called a "Train Advise Assist Command" or TAAC. RC North has transitioned to TAAC North (going from a two-star to one-star command) and soon the other RCs will do the same. Anyway . . . a correspondent and "sketcher" is traveling through RC East and as he travels around eating chow, finding cots to sleep on, and taking up seats on helicopters he does a little writing and sketching. His latest visits were to a small outpost called COP Koh-e-Safi and then later to a larger base called FOB Fenty. Read his observations and check out his artwork in "Where pencils dare", The Washington Post, September 30, 2014.
