(Updated May 23, 2023)

In this section, I started to chronicle my training experience as a senior Social Scientist who eventually deployed to Afghanistan with the U.S. military; to help my adopted country understand my birth country. I spent one year working with the U.S., British, German, Turkish, Portuguese, and French militaries. As an Afghan-American, this gave me a unique lens from which to observe war strategy and nation-building. It was a life-changing experience no doubt, and while the articles don’t include my experiences in Helmand and Kabul Provinces, my book will.

I wrote the “War Log” articles between 2019-2020, and although my writing is clunky and “feeling-less,” I’m still proud of what I produced.

Thank you for visiting!

Be well,
