Your View: Pictures submitted by Stars and Stripes readers
June 26, 2006
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.

Submitted by Navy Lt. Antonio Moscatelli, stationed at FOB Salerno in Khost, Afghanistan. On March 11, I went on my first MEDCAP in the town of Wazi, about two hours west of Khost. We arrived around 10 a.m. and set up shop. I played the role of pharmacist and helped pass out medication prescribed by the physicians working with the patients. One of the funny observations I made was the men all came first. Within the first two hours there were just men. Then slowly women and children began to trickle in. Of course we allowed the women and children to come to the front of the line. In less than five hours we treated and dispensed medication to more than 300 people.
