BAGRAM AIRFIELD, Afghanistan - A U.S. Soldier was killed Tuesday when insurgents ambushed his unit while it conducted a patrol northwest of the town of Deh Rahwood in Uruzgan Province.

The Soldier was medically evacuated to the forward surgical team in Tarin Kowt where he was pronounced dead by medical personnel. His remains were transported to Kandahar Airfield for movement back to the United States.

No other Coalition or Afghan forces were injured in the ambush.

A memorial ceremony was held this morning at Kandahar Airfield. The name of the deceased is being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

Apparently women in Afghanistan have a much improved lifestyle, since the fall of the Taleban.

I remember seeing an article in a glossy fashion mag a couple of years ago, about a beauty school being set-up in Kabul. I assume it is still there... and 'teaching'.
