I spent a year clearing IED's off roads all throughout eastern Afghanistan. AMA about military life, deployment, the war, or anything else you want!
I've been in the military for over six years now, including ~3.5 spent on active duty in Fort Bragg, NC. I deployed in 2010 and spent almost every day clearing IED's off of routes, engaging in firefights, and talking with the locals. Some bad stuff happened, but overall it was an experience that I wouldn't trade for the world. Now that I'm off active duty and in the reserves, I attend college full time studying political science with a concentration in the Middle East because it's an area of the world that's always fascinated me. Obviously, since I'm still in I sent my proof to the mods. Ask me anything you want!
