Nice talk, Terry. I finished Come From the Shadows two days ago and found this video yesterday, looking for more after finishing the book much too quickly.

Many thanks for writing this. For a long time now I've felt frustrated arguing with friends about the mission in Afganistan because I was missing the kind of detailed stories you tell about real people there.
I'm going to lend my copy to and American friend today and hopefully spread the world a little.

Long time reader of the blog too, even if I never comment. Keep it up!
