In early March 2012, I was invited to attend the International Women’s Day celebration in Mazar-e-Sharif, Afghanistan. Our team had plotted a route through the city to get to the event but, because of a last-minute change in venue, the planned route was no longer an option. Our up-armored vehicles were too wide to navigate through some of the smaller side streets in the city. Our female engagement team (FET), not wanting to decline the invitation of our counterpart females of the Afghan Border Police (ABP), worked with our convoy commander and the ABP to find alternative means of transportation into the city. The solution was for our FET to ride in the ABP’s Ford Rangers to the event. These photos are a quick view of the streets we traveled on March 8, 2012. I rode in the bed of the pickup truck and I captured these photos one-handed. My other hand was firmly gripping the side of the truck as my driver sped through town at high rates of speed. The normalcy for the ABP to drive fast, coupled with the fact that their vehicles were not up-armored, soon caused my command to deem riding in the Ford Rangers to be unsafe and, therefore, unallowed. These street photos are the only ones I have that are free from obstruction. For the remainder of my deployment, I rode in our up-armored vehicles and my view was always blocked by dirty windows, moisture, or rocket-propelled grenade (RPG) netting.
