Greetings unto M'Lords and Ladies, Fellow Archers All,
Hello from the Hindu Kush mountains of eastern Afghanistan. It's a beautiful evening here, Jupiter is shining brightly alongside a silver crescent moon over the mountains. There's been no explosions this evening, and that's a good thing. Our folks clearing out landmines and such only detonate them during the day, so what goes thump in the night is never good.
Conditions here are fairly rough, but tolerable. I've never minded living in a tent, washing my clothes in a bucket and such.
If I have any regret at all about canceling my retirement to volunteer for this mission, I have only to look around at the dedicated young men and women I serve with to be reminded of why I wanted to be here. They endure much and complain little. You can be proud of them and what they do, I know I am.
Not much hope of getting in an archery practice over here, that'll have to wait until I get back. Until then, I wish you all luck in shooting high scores for the glory of Ansteorra and the honor of archers everywhere.
Yours in Service,
Lord Robert of Yorkshire
