Afghanistan’s Logar province is a mostly agricultural region located south of the capital city of Kabul. Freelance journalist David Axe was embedded with the U.S. Army in Logar’s Baraki Barak district in October and November. He followed U.S. troops as they worked to extend services to the farmers of the area, and connect them with the Afghan government.
