Kabul, Afghanistan

The clearest sign that I am back in Afghanistan is that the electricity is out again.###### Other than that, the day is bright, shiny and cool in Kabul.

While reading/listening through the morning news, this excellent interview with Command Sergeant Major Jeff Mellinger popped up.###### The interview was conducted by Sean Pillai.

CSM Mellinger has spent about 37 years in the United States Army.###### He was the single most knowledgeable soldier I ever met when it comes to the ground war in Iraq.###### He's a walking encyclopedia who spent more time on those hot, dangerous streets than most grunts.############ CSM Mellinger gained immense respect from the combat troops.###### He only had two bosses in Iraq.###### The first was General Casey, and the second was General Petraeus, Jeff Mellinger didn't like office life.###### He liked to walk the line.

The electricity is back on, so this message can now get back to you.
