1. I’m terrified when I’m out on a battlefield. Telling these stories, I think it’s important that people understand what it’s like out there, what people go through, who are the people who are doing this in Afghanistan on our behalf. Most of us have sat this war out. I want them to know what it’s like and who is in the middle of it and what the consequences are. Beyond that, I don’t really have an agenda. I think that’s really important, especially in a democracy. We need to know who is doing it and what it’s like for them.
