Is there not a PX where they are?
The troops there have had the worst fighting of the WOT - last year - and it increased by 40% this year - the Sky Soldiers of the 173rd AIRBORNE that just left after 15 months there, averaged about 2 firefights a day...month in month out...living on tiny outposts they pickaxed out of the mountain sides, outside the wire on patrols, climbing around the mountains like goats - that are constantly being ambushed.
There has already been an ABC documentary on one of the units that had the worst of it - BATTLE CO. - and a Vanity Fair article and a NYTimes Magazine cover article on them.
When medals for valor were given to 12 of them last month, shortly before they ended their deployment in hell, Admiral Mullen, himself, went there to present them. There will soon be another documentary on them. Watch for it. (The other ones can be found on line...) The country will know what these incredible troops have been through and accomplished...and suffered - the 173rd lost 42.
