    While you are there you might try to get in with one of the PRTs. A few of them are using beekeeping in Kunar Prov to assist the locals in making more money. Just a thought. Google "Afghanistan beekeeping" and you will get a few. I think the OK NG did a big project on this. Locals earned avg of $300/yr and beekeeping suplemented their income by about $100 annually based on honey sales. Doesn't sound like much to us but pretty huge to them.

    You missed a great opportunity, one of the best to learn from on this forum just returned from 2 years in Kabul.

    Thank you for serving, keep your head down.

    welcome, I too just got to the forum. My son just left the corp a couple of months ago and used to get deployed to western Afghanistan, made me worry every time. Thanks for your service.
