    Greetings from Afghanistan. Having officially passed the mid-point of the Division's deployment to Afghanistan, it's worthwhile to reflect a bit on where we were and where we are now. At the beginning of Operation Enduring Freedom, Afghanistan was once a country run by the Taliban, a country that provided safe haven to al Qaeda, a country that had no real infrastructure or public services, and was a country with no security forces to protect and defend its population from the horrors of war and oppression. Since then, Afghanistan and its people have come a long way. Your Screaming Eagles continue to perform a critical role in the success of our mission, supporting the Afghan National Security Forces as they lead the effort to secure their nation for the first time since this conflict began nearly twelve years ago.
