Marquett Martin of Martinsville (near driver’s seat) readies a truck to haul a water tank. They are outside the Air Force base at Kandahar, Afghanistan, and will bring the tank to supply water to “poor village people,” including the men helping him load the tank, he said. Marquett Martin is in the tent where he lived in Kandahar, Afghanistan. Has three climates: hot, extreme cold and rain seasons. “I managed very well in my tent,” he added. “Over the years I made it just like home with carpet” and other amenities. Marquett Martin embraces two of the village children with whom the contractors and troops share food.
Marquett Martin (left) joins hands with two Afghan villagers who “wanted to take a photo with an American to show meanings of friendships overseas,” he said. A destroyed building is in the background.
