Afghan Map

“From the start we covered frontline stories, which required a steady diet of Russian military maps, bareback rides on mountain-bred horses across frigid rivers, a phone book filled with satellite numbers for field commanders, and a stomach for black tea. Some days mortar fire thundered constantly. Other days were still.”
— Lois Raimondo
