INSTAPUNDIT'S AFGHANISTAN PHOTO-CORRESPONDENT, Major John Tammes, sends the picture above, and reports:

This is my class in CJSA 1348, Ethics in Criminal Justice, which met for 3 hours every Monday and Wednesday night over 8 weeks. I taught them as an Adjunct Instructor for Central Texas College, Bagram Education Center. They had two classes interrupted by rocket attacks and alerts, they studied between missions and after 13+ hour shifts, and they did it well. As I turned in their grades today, it struck me that they had achieved something quite admirable.

Indeed. Tammes adds: "P.S. After reading your Guardian story, I feel like a war correspondent. I'm flattered." Hey, if you're corresponding from a war, you're a "war correspondent." Right?
