More Afghan News

The NY Times is reporting that the Taliban ranks in Afghanistan and Pakistan are being swelled with foreign fighters who have come to fight the Great Satan. Since this is similar to the intel we received when I was deployed, I don't find this surprising, though it is somewhat darkly ironic to hear these newer fighters described as "more radical" than the Afghan Taliban.

is there any chance you could be called back to active duty again?

Possible. The problem is, I hurt my back at the beginning of the deployment. I'm not currently experiencing symptoms, but wearing body armor or performing MOS-related tasks would most likely hurt.

I don't want to take the government's
money, but I'm afraid if I don't, I might be recalled- and injure my back
