Reachback – Chapter 1 – Relationships and the Social Network

and Im not talking about facebook. The first thing any volunteer citizen supporting stability operations should do is learn the Pah’tan (Pashtun) Honor Code, Pashtun Wali.


Building relationships is very important in Afghanistan if you plan to get out to the villages and help folks. Our main focus was the Public Hospital and Public University, but eventually we learned the Villages are where we could win some hearts and minds.
