Why We Are Here
MSGT Ken Mahoy spoke of his deployment in Afghanistan; he’s a big humanitarian, who loved to help out anybody in need. He had the opportunity of handing out the humanitarian goods at a Koocha Camp on the outskirts of Kabul. MSGT Mahoy made an enormous difference in the life of the refugees’ who were staying at the Koocha Camp. While the supplies were being unloaded from the truck, Mahoy would teach the concept of tag to the children to keep them entertained. The children picked up a little of the English language and the knowledge of a common game. The children were also taught how to thumb wrestle, play ring around the rosie; duck duck goose, and London bridge. From both of these blogs the soldiers touched many lives, and many people had touched their lives. Having the chance to read these blogs have given me a whole new perspective on the war, it’s more than just fighting and patrolling villages to make sure nothing is wrong.
