I was deployed in a counterinsurgency area and the guards from the Defense Security Corps were on duty day and night. The conditions were pretty terrible; it was cold, security was very high and tensions were at their peak.
While going for a security round with the security in charge, I realized that the living conditions of the guards were pretty awful and that they were missing home. To cheer them up, the next day, I got some snacks and sweets for them. The smiles on their faces were truly worth a million dollars.
