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 E-mail your photos to:

Submitted by Sgt. April K. Martinez, Company C, 3rd Brigade Special Troop Battalion at Forward Operating Base Salerno, Afghanistan. This is one of the things our company does out here to keep up morale. We try to do a barbecue whenever we can. It gives the soldiers in our company a break from the hard work they do every day and reminds us a little of the summers at home. We are in a signal company and in charge of communications throughout the FOB.
