Aaron in Afghanistan

Aaron has been in Afghanistan for two weeks now, embedded with the soldiers, as their photographer. Not good timing, just before the wedding. Kathryn wasn’t pleased about him going. But it’s his job.

We got a distressed call from her yesterday, saying that the patrol he’s with had been ambushed by the Taliban. They’d been surrounded and had to fight their way out, with bullets flying everywhere. He thought he was going to die. They escaped. He said how brave and professional our soldiers were. No one was killed, but some of our soldiers were injured.

Sorry to hear about your soon to be son-in-law but there is no one I would rather have to my left and my right in a fire fight beside an American or British soldier.

Cheers to the Queen.
