Peace on Earth

"There are 48 women presently working along the volatile front lines of the war in Afghanistan deployed as the second Female Engagement team participating in a more active role, gaining access where men can't. The women, many who volunteer for the 6.5 month deployment take a 10 week course at Camp Pendleton in California where they are trained for any possible situation, including learning Afghan customs and basic Pashtun language."

Wishing you and all the men and women
 in our Armed Forces
 a Happy Holiday Season and hoping for Peace.
