Talking is contagious

Two years ago this day, I was a private as part of the Canadian Charlie Company Battlegroup in Kandahar, Afghanistan - a part of the 2 PPCLI-led Task Force 1-08. We deployed on a patrol south off PSS (Police Sub-station) Spin Pir, and right away, you could tell that it was going to be a bad day. Men, women and children streaming north, pushing wheelbarrows and carrying possessions... Very strong combat indicators.
