"Through the efforts of very many brave men and women, tough men and women - soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines - we're

completing our mission," said Col. Thomas McGrath, commander of Afghanistan Regional Security Integration Command South. "And we're setting the stages for the future operations and for the future of the Afghan army and police and bringing stability to this country."

On DoD Bloggers Roundtable August 1, Col McGrath reflected on his 14 months in southern Afghanistan, as he prepares to return home to the United States, and the mission to build the capacity and capability of the Afghan army and police.
