The 4th of July at FOB Shank - Afghanistan
The sky was dingy with dust; not uncommon for Logar, Afghanistan. I climbed Airborne hill for some scenic photos despite the poor lighting. Then off in the distance, a Blackhawk popped flares.
Finally, I want to leave you by introducing the new, official FaST Surgeon photographer and writer. Captain Johnson is the fantabulous occupational therapist that has helped to pioneer new and exciting treatment for mild traumatic brain injury right at the front lines. Although he is a Mac-head... and although he shoots with a Canon camera (Michael Yon will appreciate that :)) .. I know he will continue to help serve up fantastic pictures and stories for FaST Surgeon until the end of the year. CPT Johnson also has a blog at Army OT Guy.com. Go check it out.
I will continue to author and edit the stories, but for the next few days I will be out of touch. There will be a break in the action until I can get back online. Thank you all for your support. Its been an honor to serve.
