Some of you* may have seen the recent footage from some attacks in Afghanistan. It involved both NATO and Afghan forces. Well, it turns out my younger brother was part of that response. He is on his second tour to Afghanistan now. He doesn't talk about the details of what he does (and I would rather not know), but it has been clear that this time he is much more in the thick of things. Obviously it is never safe in a war zone, but showing up on the news for a big attack is not good. He is OK, but please keep him in your prayers, as well as all the soldiers over there.
*Actually, if you only listen to US news, you may not have heard of it. The BBC is covering this much more than any news programs here. But that is a topic for another post.
