Spc. Jason Harris, a cavalry scout with the 5th Squadron, 1st Cavalry Regiment, 1st Stryker Brigade Combat Team, 25th Infantry Division, reads "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss to his son Brayden during a United Through Reading DVD recording session Sept. 9 at Kandahar Airfield, Afghanistan. The United Through Reading program allows Soldiers to record themselves reading to their children. Once the service member has customized his or her video, staff members finalize the disc and mail it to families back home at no cost to the Soldier. The Fort Wainwright, Alaska-based Soldier likes to spend his rare free time reading to his son through the USO sponsored program.
