He was an ex-3 Para soldier from the Brit army, so he knew the drill. We’d been to the same places in Northern Ireland, so he knew what I was going through; no airborne warrior liked being cooped up in an armoured vehicle—it was anathema to our nature. And with that, I walked over to the warrant, Hetsa, and Fourneau. I told them I’d see them in Masum Ghar, as we were being split up for the ride. I then found my Bison vehicle, hopped into the back, and said a silent prayer and reminded myself that the Lord hates a coward as the heavy metal door was closed shut, blocking out all the light and air from the outside.

As a result, the mentoring concept would often break down because trainers didn’t feel it was safe to bring up any issues that could cause an Afghan commander or soldier to lose face.

He was going on a convoy run and offered to bring us back some gear. I knew that Hetsa, Fourneau, and I all wanted an American-style day sack with a CamelBak water carrier inside of it, so I gave him some money that I’d already collected from the boys and told the CSM thanks a lot. “No problem, sir. ” I looked at the OC and said, “Goodbye, sir,” as I walked past him toward the exit.
