Pictures of the justice complex
The first site visit was to the justice complex and as we were walking out two older women in head scarfs came out of nowhere and walked up to us. Lisa (the girl I'm replacing) and I talked to them and they told us that they want to be soldiers and do what we do. They even said they were strong enough to wear our body armor.
At the girls school we met the principal, who is also a woman. She was very kind and appreciates the school we are funding. We took a picture with her and all the teachers before we left and I am promised to come back and have chai with her.Working on the black board and meeting the principal and teachers for the girls school
Next stop was the hospital where we are funding a hundred bed pediatric wing to the main hospital in Jalalabad. I inspected some form work and got to meet some of the children.
Lastly we went to Duranta Dam, which was built by the Russians. Our guys got some time with the crew served weapons while we chased away little kids who kept on creeping closer and closer to us.It was an amazing day and I was wiped out when we returned. The hot weather doesn't help at all but I can't wait to go out again. Today I have meetings all day long with contractors. Should be fun!
