I’ve gotten to know Andrew Lubin a bit over the past few years through the blogger briefings that the Defense Department holds, so it’s cool to see him attempting to return to Afghanistan for his fifth trip to cover the war as a freelancer. These things cost money — less than you’d expect, but still — so Andrew’s hoping you guys will check out some of his work and decide to fund his trip. He wants to cover the forthcoming U.S./NATO/Afghan push into Kandahar and asked me if I’d pass this on to my readership, so take a moment to consider it, won’t you?
