POTD: Last American Soldier Leaves Afghanistan

    Major General Chris Donahue

    Photo Of The Day: The world’s first photograph, made by a camera, goes back to the year 1826. It was taken by Joseph Nicéphore Niépce. Here we are today looking at a picture taken with the help of Night Vision as the last American soldier leaves Afghanistan. This is history in the writing whether we like it or not.

    Here is the caption of the picture:

    Major General Chris Donahue, commander of the U.S. Army 82nd Airborne Division, XVIII Airborne Corps, boards a C-17 cargo plane at the Hamid Karzai International Airport in Kabul, Afghanistan. Maj. Gen. Donahue is the final American service member to depart Afghanistan; his departure closes the U.S. mission to evacuate American citizens, Afghan Special Immigrant Visa applicants, and vulnerable Afghans.

    We welcome comments, but please remember this is not the place to discuss politics and such.
