Far-away Farah again -- the home of combat photographers where there is no combat. "Providing security" because they don't trust the ANA. Even took their weapons away! There was a story about US enlisted men taking an ANA general's sidearm whenever he entered a US base, and how humiliated he was -- in his own country (technically).

And the photo subject -- another white guy. Let's give African-Americans and Hispanics some due credit, eh?

The "white" guy is also a Choctaw American Indian. Shall we not label 'color'. It is good to see a picture of our son, whom we have only spent very few hours, in the past  years. I will not spoil the moment with politics and worry about the danger these men face everyday.
