I Really Need to Know..

OK. I need to know whats really going on in Afghanistan. I can't watch the news,my entire life I've never been able to I have really bad attacks and I'm sure they would be worse now that babycakes is over there.

 

I've heard a few different things and I need to know whats true..

1. Because of people getting pulled from Iraq are they shortening deployments in Afghanistan because they have more people to rotate?

2.How bad is it there? I've heard it all.. the worst thing is no running water..then I've heard since its getting hot  its about to get worse but with that I've heard yes it gets worse in summer but they suck at aiming so you can watch them shoot at you and they don't even get close..Then i heard its going to get bad cause it summer but worse because there is about to be an "on the ground battle and our causalities numbers will go up"

3.How bad is it there? like really.I need the truth cause I don't know and I don't know if what I'm thinking is a thousand times worse.. but that's usually what I do and i just need someone to tell me how it is.

My airman is special ops and I haven't heard from him in almost 3 months. He just disappeared after texting me two days in a row. He is in Afghanistan. Has anyone else had this happen??

My soldier is in afghanistan as well. During missions our contacted is limited or when he moves ba<x>ses. I got really spoiled when he was at a certain location we were in constant contact. He braced me for this mission limited contact but now that its here its just awful. I miss him.

Hi everyone - I am new to this board, but feel like I really need to reach out to people who understand. My soldier is over there now and will be for about a year. The hardest thing is when I don't hear from him for weeks. Is this normal? I know that he goes on missions a lot, but I get so worried I feel sick.

my man is in Afghanistan and its been a month since we last talked. glad a friend of ours in the other unit can relay my message to him through letter. its sad though but i have to stay tough and pray for his safety everyday. i always visit the us army website to keep updated whats's goin on there. hope after hsi mission we'll be able to talk again.. i miss u baby..

I'm glad you made this topic cause I'm dying to know what happens in Afghanistan as well. I have little info about the country. All I know is those Taliban and their suicide bombs =[ My man had one when we were chatting but it was nothing biggie he said. And other than sucky net connections, I don't know >< How long your soldier have to be there?

you're man is fighting for the greatast fighting force the world has ever seen. he is safer than the average city kid right here at home. WRITE HIM AS OFTEN AS YOU CAN! i can't stress that enough. i served in iraq, and i know that mail call is more important than anything, especially from the woman you love! it will also help you to cope. my prayers are with you both.
