Soldier touched by Young Afghan attendees of Women’s Day celebration

 

Written by By U.S. Army Sgt. Ginifer Spada
Task Force Bastogne Public Affairs

BastogneFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionNangarhar Province, Afghanistan – Raishea is a young Afghan girl of about 14. She has a shy smile and a soft voice. She is quite like most 14-year-old girls I know. Except that her reality in Afghanistan’s war-torn Nangarhar Province is something most people can’t fathom. I got the incredible opportunity to meet her last month in Jalalabad.

In Afghanistan, leaders have many hard decisions to make, and there are many gray areas. I don’t envy them as they plan the best route for their Soldiers. There is one area, for me at least, that is not gray – Afghanistan’s women, and in particular, its girls and their education.
