NBC News reports on Christmas for the U.S. Military in Afghanistan: “It was neither a silent nor holy night for American troops based in Afghanistan.”

“With the whir of choppers overhead, weapons holstered at their sides, and convoys rolling out, everyone was constantly reminded of the job at hand and dangers they face.”

“SPC Marum May spent Christmas morning cleaning and doing maintenance on his M16 rifle, bracing for any situation.”
