I just got back from my R&R leave at the beginning of June so I was home for Memorial Weekend which was nice, except for the weather.
I am part of a 12-man Operational Mentor and Liaison Team (OMLT). We are the 4th team from Minnesota to do this mission. We help the Afghan National Army with training and whatnot. If you go on to the Minnesota National Guard website there are pictures of us out there on missions that we have done.
The team really appreciates the cards and letters, and the ones we don't use I give to the chaplain for hte rest of the soldiers on base.
