non lethal

Pcitures from a recent meeting in the district center with our commander, Sherbadir (district subgovernor) and our non - lethal team. Captain Lumen holds the flower and is the person who coordinates the development funding and information arms of the army. Specialist Alex Koletas and LT Steve Hunnewell from two of the civil affairs team and we work together daily on governance and development. Sherbadir is standing next to Steve and Alex. We were invited to stay for lunch (YUMMY!) and enjoyed stewed lamb and goat, potatoes, rice, bread, bananas and stewed okra. Both LTC Ryan and I foundered on the okra - its way better the way the Afghans prepared it than when fried as is more typical in the US.
