what´s the deal with Muspelheim?
This morning, a soldier from the escort-section was seriously wounded by an IED north of PB Hazrat. He was able to phone relatives himself, though.
A few pics
Not much happening lately. A couple of days ago 4 soldiers were wounded when their vehicle hit an IED, They have all been transferred from the Field Hospital to the Danish infirmery, so they obviously weren't seriously wounded.
In other news:
Danish and Afghan soldier re-united after 3 years.
In 2009, A Danish soldier did first aid to a then Afghan private after he had been shot in the neck, captured on film that made it into the Armadillo documentary.
Now the two soldiers are re-united. The Danish 1st sergeant Khani and the Afghan sergeant Abdurauf meet at Regional Military Training Command (RMTC) at Camp Shorabak, where Khani is a mentor (completing his 3rd tour in Helmand) and Aburauf is attending classes to qualify to teach his own troops.
It's always educational to come here and read up on Danish activity in Helmand. Real eye opener. I was reading some paper a few weeks back about the plaudits given to the Danish during the Iraq WAR in the Bush presidency and how the Danes stayed their ground even when it was politically harmful. I really respect the Danes for their service in both fronts.
The Armadillo documentary was filmed during the Danish team 7. But just to show you that the fighting wasn't just hard while they were there, here are figures from team 9: Of a company of 140, 31 were wounded and 2 killed, and 12 were sent home for psychological reasons!
