He's the One with the Black Hair



Vulgarius sends everyone his best wishes from Afghanistan. The caption is as follows:

This is me on a medical contact mission at a Kabul area school just before Christmas. I was mostly a gopher handing out candy and herding the kids around into line. It was like herding cats. We were there with the Brits who pulled security while we did our thing. It was great working with the kids. A village elder was eager to provide hot tea on that bitterly cold day. He was very grateful for the visit. We struck up a long and good conversation and he even tried to convert me to Islam. I took it as a compliment just the same.


Stay safe and good work!

Snabbie, do you have the URL to Nate's website? He's one of Chris's workmates over there, and he has pictures (including that one) and videos posted. It's worth checking out!

Just in case, here's the link.

I'm glad to see Chris is doing well over there.

Chris looks good in that photo. I hope that's not an IED under his jacket, though.

Maybe an ICD or an IPD?

Perhaps grounds for another puzzle? (oh please, please, please!!!)

Technically, you can't see what color hair he has because of the took, so by inference, he's one of the afghan kids.

Won't Leanne be surprised!

Gotcha!
