I've… seen things you people wouldn't believe… Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion. I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those… moments… will be lost in time, like tears… in… rain.
When I was working in Afghanistan ('06-'07); the two projects I worked on used Nepali vets (Royal Nepali Army, Nepali Police, & Indian Army [Nepali Battalions]) as Force Protection in static (entry/exit points, watch towers, observation posts, etc) security roles as well as adjunct Protective Security (body guarding) to fill in for other personnel. I TDYed for 5 months from the project I was contracted to; to run a Counter Narcotics PSD Team in another project. My Team Leaders and Members were all Nepali as well..................real great group of guys. Very gung ho and dedicated; flexible on changing tasks/techniques, very willing to learn, and generous to a fault. I've only got contact info for one of my old Team Leaders, and have not been able to get a hold of him so far. Hoping they and their families all made it OK!!!
