Of Helmand: Camp Leatherneck
Camp Leatherneck is not scenic. It is mostly row after row of tent, some of them impressively large or occasionally surrounded by barbed wire. It's also not a place where they probably get real excited about having pictures of their tents and barbed wire published on The Dirty Internet (as it is apparently called by some security-minded IT people). So here is a picture that I hope is sufficiently nondescript to be publishable. The first is out on the edge of the camp, where the sea of tents gives way to the sea of dust that surrounds Leatherneck for untold miles.
