    " A Kindle "Single"--a short biographical account of being embedded with the 101st Airborne division. An interesting "peek" into the Kandahar Air Field (KAF)and brief accounts from soldiers and their combat experience. "

    " I admit I cried while I read this. Very close to home for me. Leftist leanings but I really liked it. "

    " This short piece on the war in Afghanistan does not really contain any new information. Berenson is embedded with a unit and reports on the problems they face. For anyone up to date on the happenings, this covers familiar territory. "

    " This Kindle Single made me very sad to realize how futile and horrible our wars in Afghanistan and Iraq are both in terms of moey spent, but more particularly in terms of American casualites and fatalities. We need to get the hell out of there with all due dispatch!!! "

    " Berenson's description of KAF, Afghanistan and it's corruption resonates with my own cynicism. I remember. "
