    Has anyone traveled on Disney road in Afghanistan?

    It was named after my best friend that was killed while serving in the Army. He went there and I was deployed to Kuwait before OIF started. I have never been on it but I would love to go and see the memorial one day.

    not when it was renamed but if you chase down a fella called Michael Yon ( a ex servicemans now reporter) he did a documentary on it a year or two ago for his 4th book

    Cheers for the Links

    a little research here has brought this up

    i'm with a couple specialist demining / IED groups

    this is from the team who went across to organise demining ops for civil area's
    ( same team started by Lady Diana of the UK royals)

    a news letter put out a couple years ago of the early days of the demining op's

    rest easy mate , it get's better.. always remember your mates , its bloody tough , but we owe it to them eh , to make sure they are never forgotten ..

    cheers

    Thanks for the pictures. Makes me feel good to see people posing with his namesake plaque.
