Afghan Women’s Voices:


PLAYAS, N.M. – None of the women knew each other when they boarded the bus in San Diego – on Sept. 11 – for the 15-hour journey that would take them to this remote corner of New Mexico’s Bootheel.

Soldier’s Voices:

PLAYAS, N.M. – Pfc. Jarrod Griffey and Pfc. Jeff Godbey stood at the entrance to the marketplace, eyes on the crowd. A car had just driven through the crowded market and a scuffle broke out.
