Amid “green-on-blue” attacks, it’s plain to see from this video from the Pakistan-bordering Kunar province in eastern Afghanistan that U.S. Army troops don’t have the blues (sure looks like friendly Afghan troops popping up at about 1:45 into the video).
Check out this just-posted cover of Call Me Maybe (as sung by Carly Rae Jepsen), “for the enjoyment of our families and the [Family Readiness Group] back home,” the troops say on YouTube. “See you in just a few more months, and thanks for all your support!”
Battleland contributor Doug Ollivant asks the obvious question: “I do wonder how many servers are crashing in Kabul trying to download this.”
Funny that as the old folks back in D.C. debate the wisdom of the Afghanistan campaign, the troops actually doing the fighting prefer to spend their time wondering if their new love is true.
Out of the mouths of babes…
