*** Causing a stir:

Here’s the latest from Tom Clementson in Afghanistan.

Just posted a batch of photos from today's visit with one of the local schools we're supporting.

(http://www.facebook.com/?messages%2F&action=read&tid=id.155404471201781&mid=4c437e2G236ee2e2G82a11efG0&bcode=wSM0xhtt&n_m=lundquist989%40cs.com#!/media/set/?set=a.2329119156867.2138910.1516353761&type=1)

We took stock of some of the medicine purchased to help them through the winter, offered snacks for some of the kids and handed our crayons and coloring books. Took a few shots of some of the material on the walls. They are learning a little bit of english, in addition to literacy in Pashtu and Dari. One shot of the coloring book pages on the wall gives you an idea of just how useful some of these simple things can be to the kids here.

At the end we had a little time to play on the swings and a couple of the kids showed us their mastery at kite-flying.

Great day out and big thanks to your folks whose paper, pencils, crayons and coloring books have really started to make a difference.

And of course once I got back to base I enjoyed a tall cup of joe with flavored creamer!

Tom

Ned,

Hoping you're OK during the storm. Old Navy guy like you shouldn't have any problem with it.

You see Tom Clementson's shots of his Army unit at the Afghan school at his facebook page? You've done much to help these guys and gals, and I don't know if you can run pics on JOTW, but it might help to reinvigorate the cause.

Thanks for all you do.
