Part of the story of our involvement in Afghanistan is being told by artists, and much of their work has yet to be seen. Today the UK Ministry of Defence released this image by Matthew Cook, a solider in the Territorial Army who is also an artist and who has portrayed some of his experiences while in theatre. This drawing “shows a Chinook helicopter resupply at the Forward Operating Base in Sangin, Afghanistan. The orange smoke grenade marks the helicopter landing site and indicates wind direction.”
