Fort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionRakkasanKhowst Province, Afghanistan – The village of Nakam is small, there is no electricity and the water comes from several small well pumps throughout the town. It is a farming community surrounded by dusty fields, resembling the American dust bowl of the 1930’s.

As U.S. Army Soldiers walk through the streets of this small village in the morning hours of January 10th, 2013, they are quickly surrounded by Afghan children. The children stare up in awe at the large green men and ask for pens and water.
