U.S. Army Capt. Rader gives an Afghan boy a marker outside of the District Center in Spin Boldak
City, Kandahar Province, Afghanistan, Sep. 18, 2011. (U.S. Army photo by Spc. Kristina Truluck/Released)


Kids out in these villages are obsessed with pens. From what I understand, they're not
allowed to even get into school without basic supplies like this.

What would you be doing with it? 
I just want to make sure those pictured aren't painted in a bad light.

They still get pretty excited over it.  They have to have their own supplies to b able to attend school.

I love this! It definitely caught my attention and a nice tribute to the troops. I wish I could favorite this more than once. Well done!

Aw, thank you!  These kinds of things are the closest us parents can get that's similar to spending time with our own kids.

Thank you!  I wish I had better ones of them playing peek-a-boo around one of the barriers.  I was waiting for CPT Rader to fall over because of his beastly bag.

I just realized, you guys probably had such a huge effect on that area if a school is even present in the area.

Eh...yes and no.  Depending on the area, the Taliban were taking advantage of the school kids.  =/
