"We Could Be Heroes"

On Untethered, Dennis Dale posts a gem of a short short story about the fighting in Afghanistan from the American enlisted man's perspective.

If you haven't seen it, you should check out Sebastian Junger's great article about the infantrymen in small outpost in Afghanistan, "Into the Valley of Death". Reading that almost made me want to re-enlist.

You should look at Michael Yon's site. He's been there several times as an embed.

According to Yon, Afghanistan is a "Special Forces Hunting Lodge" due to logistical constraints -- resupply is through Pakistan which is shaky.

Yon is not optimistic about Afghanistan, but is about Iraq.

Thanks, Steve.
Posting fiction is like hitting the beach in a speedo (not that I would know); you just know everyone is laughing at you.
