The New York Times again invites members of the military who are serving, or have served, in Afghanistan to help us document the daily life of this war in photographs, video and writing. Take us on a tour of the FOB, introduce us to your friends, describe the hardships of deployment and the humor that helps you pass the time.
Loved ones of those serving in Afghanistan are also invited to participate. Show us what life at home is like without your husband or wife, mother or father, daughter or son.
Scan or take close-up photographs of letters you have sent or received and send us copies of e-mails and digital photos you have used to keep in touch during the deployment.
We will select from the submissions we receive and post them in a gallery of experiences from the field.
Why do I get the feeling this will not turn out well. I hope to be pleasantly surprised with an honorable treatment of those who have served.
