Thanks for the kind words!
The brother, at the time of the project, worked at the Herat Public Library in Western Afghanistan. While we were there, we tried to catch up with him but were unable to. It was one of the projects disappointments because it would have been such an incredible story to tell!

Grass Root Diplomacy
Excellent job, in Diplomacy, Humanitarism, and introducing our cultures to one another. My youngest son just came home from deployment 1 st Marines.. expiditionary. honestly I gained more insight from viewing the first 5 days, of your work. i was especially curious about what the student Mohamed said about the 1 st days when his family returned to Afganistan after fleeing to Iran. He said they thought it would be safe, then went on to say the Taliban took his brother to be in there " army ", well what ever happined to the brother ?

Thanks for the kind words Chris and I'm so happy we were able to provide you a connection to Afghanistan. I hope to be able to do this again someday. I'll admit, I tear up a little bit watching Ken's final vlog. This mission has truely been the greatest experience of my military life, and not because I got to go all around Afghanistan, but because of comments just like yours.

Teary Gratitude
I learned more than I could have imagined I would from this virtual experience, but it has been more than that for me. Like many who log in every day, I too have someone I love who is there living in this reality right now. This daily journey helped me feel connected...like he's not really all that far away after all...like I could still be part of his world every day...like I could understand a little about what he is living. Since I won't have that daily connection anymore, I have to admit that saying goodbye at the end of this 35 days tears me up, but I thank all of you involved in bringing this experience to us. It has opened my eyes to many things and I am very much grateful to you all for that! smilies/smiley.gif

Helped so much
I thought I knew what was going down in Afghanistan, ever since my cousin was deployed back in 07/08 I tried to learn as much about the country as I could. Sadly though it was really only Kandahar I was really learning about, I had no idea what was going on anywhere else in the country, really glad I heard about this project on the pentagon channel. Hopefully I can use some of the stuff I learned during these 30+ days and incorporate it into my history summative which is on Afghanistan.

Those who work in defense love your blog
Please keep posting! I hope more people choose to visit your site as a daily read. Perhaps you should submit a new press release to CNN or another large news agency. What you are doing should not go unnoticed.
