where and when were you in Afghanistan?

I know we have the same Iraq thread, and saw one post about Afghanistan. I figured we should separate them out, since those of us who've been to both know the frustration of them lumped together. They're very different.

In addition to my Iraq deployments, I was with a SOF JTF in Bagram and flew around to many Combat Outposts across the country for missions. I was there from August 2011 to February 2012. Then Kabul in January 2013 for a month.

Where were you? And add who you were with if you'd like.

I was stationed with 7th Marines at Camp Dwyer in Garmsir District, Afghanistan from April 2010 - Nov 2010. Boy was it hot with miles of sand all around and sand storms three times a week. Wouldn't mind going again but I have been out of the Marines for two years now.

Gardez from march until July 1st 2012 when I got blown up and medavaced
So many people to thank here's a start to the list
Spidertrax, Yukon, rustys, warn, branik, PSC, advance adapters, Bad wheels, interco, essentially off-road. And many more

Most of all thanks too Ian Johnson and the xtreme off-road crew for all their work, and 4 wheel to heal for their part in it too.
