Many of our nation's deployed troops are Mindconnection customers, as are various branches of the Armed Forces and some international military organizations and operations.

We've had the honor of receiving phone calls and e-mails from these brave people. We've also received some photos. USAF Sergeant Melahn (pictured in first row of photos), sent the Afghanistan photos on this page and has asked us to post them for the world to see. Sarge, consider it done.

You'll notice that many of these are townspeople and even children. That's because Sergeant Melahn, who sent these photos, is a grandmother and her role at the time she took these photos was to help protect children from the same Taliban forces that had already invaded schoolhouses with lethal consequences to the children in classes (something they have done a lot less since US troops arrived). You'll also see photos of the Sergeant with troops from various countries. There's even a photo of a tornado.

Note to John Kerry: Our troops and those of the other 3 dozen or so countries in this effort are not a bunch of idiots using crappy equipment and getting their butts kicked. In fact, the average IQ in our active military is higher than that of the US population and higher than your college test scores indicate your IQ is. Check your facts, next time you decide to burden us with a "joke."
