    I just spoke with a Specialist with the 45th Infantry back on leave. Murph was able to track down a few of the guys from the 45th and send knives from the first Military Build over to Afghanistan.

    These were very well recieved and the guys are super appreciative. The plan was to take a photograph with everyone with the Knife Dog knives but they got split up shortly afterwards.

    Most of those knives are working in a very dangerous part of Afghanistan - a Combat Outpost in Paktia Province.

    They're riding with guys on patrol in turrets manning Mark 19's. They're in a hide pulling overwatch.

    They're carrying their share of the load.

    It was requested of me to send thanks to all of you for your hard work and support of the troops.

    Congratulations men. Well done.

    No sir I'm sorry I do not and they're moving around. Communication is spotty at best.

    Thank you for posting the update Bill. I've tried maintaining comms with my point of contact, but with the limited comms access these guys have I have no doubt they are using those resources to communicate with loved ones (that's understandably much more rewarding than wasting time communicating with some bald guy that mailed a package).

    K.D.s, please keep these soldiers in your prayers. From all reports I've received on my end, these guys drew a pretty hard mission, but they are doing more than their part in the overall counter insurgency mission.

    Bill , Thank you for the Update , I know all involved appreciate it .
    Murph , Thank you for continuing efforts to bring a satisfying conclusion to the Build . And Thank you for your continuing Service to our Country :42:..​

    I hope they never have to use those knives for anything more dangerous than cutting open a care package . But having handled each and every knife , I know they will serve them well , for whatever arises . ​
    It was awesome to be a part of this ...​
