Happy Farmer Day!

On Nawruz itself, your correspondent went to a small Combat Outpost (COP) in nearby Logar province to check in on some projects our team there is working on, and, of course, to see how they celebrate the Nawruz. And one event for Nawruz was the distribution of shovels, picks, balsam tree cuttings, and small fir trees for local farmers. So, after standing outside in the sun all morning on a glorious clear spring day without a drop of sunscreen, your correspondent was privileged to personally distribute a few trees. The guy on the right seems pretty happy - maybe because of the great new shovel he just got, or maybe he's just amused about why this weird lobster-red guy is having his picture taken while handing him a tree.
