A day in the life fighting a counterinsurgency war

Regular readers will know that Kaboom: A soldier's war journal is my favourite US war blog and in my opinion the best milblog currently updating from Iraq.

In his latest post, LT G is interrupted trying to win over some hearts and minds with a game of dominoes out in the local village:
"Fighting in a counterinsurgency war isn’t always sleepless cycles of constant patrols and trying to decipher incomprehensible link diagrams. There are the finer moments; moments and events whose effects on my soldiers’ morale and spirits can’t really be quantified with a pie chart or a PowerPoint slideshow."
