Nobody knows better than Stars and Stripes what you go through downrange. Except you. So we want your help in telling your story. E-mail us your digital photos, depicting what life is like wherever you are, whether on the FOB or on a mission somewhere in the wild. It’s “Your View” of your role in the wars, whether Iraq, Afghanistan or somewhere else. Candid (not posed) shots are best, and please include your name, unit, location and a short caption explaining the picture and your thoughts when you took the shot. Selected photos will be used in the paper and here at stripes.com. E-mail your photos to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

We built tent pads, set up tents and wired them with lights, outlets and air conditioners. Across the street was Abbac School, which schools approximately 300-400 children from surrounding farms. Here, 2nd Lt. John Watrin handing out soda to several kids after school was let out for the day.
