A REQUEST FROM MY COLLEAGUE, AND FORMER MARINE, BOB LLOYD:

Your used computer can help fight terror. As the American advisors pull out, the Afghan army needs computers for its JAG Corps headquarters. Having a transparent military justice system is crucial to having an army that can stand up to the Taliban, and right now the JAG Corps is struggling to keep up with paper records.

Security regulations prohibit turning over U.S. military computers, so the American advisors are asking for donations of used computers. Desktops, laptops, or whatever will be appreciated. It doesn’t matter how old they are. Hard disks will be wiped clean before U.S. personnel release them.

If you have a used computer you would be willing to donate please send it to:

Robin Kimmelman
205 CAT
FOB Lindsay
APO AE 09355

Colonel Kimmelman is an Air Force lawyer who has been in Afghanistan for the past 13 months.

Hope somebody out there can help.
