CAMP LEATHERNECK, Afghanistan — Good morning, friends. Photographer Tom Brown and I successfully hopped a CH-53 flight night last night from Camp Hanson in Marjah to Camp Leatherneck.
While that means our time with 3rd Battalion, 6th Marines, has come to a close, we’ll be posting a variety of photographs and blog entries in the next few days in this space that shows what life is like for those Marines, who took great care of us while we were embedded with them.
We’ll also be blogging about life here at Leatherneck again and pointing out some of the more serious journalism we’ve done on this trip as it goes live on our website. For example, this long-form piece on the sniper threat in Marjah appeared on the Marine Corps Times website within the last day or three.
As always, thanks for reading. Enjoy your Memorial Day weekend, and if you happen to have time, consider checking out the comments under the infamous Sarah Palin tattoo entry. The conversation grows richer by the minute, and exploded on the Internet in the last 24 hours.
