"How I’ll End the War": Notes from an Officer on His Way to Afghanistan
Here is an American military officer’s first hand account of war, how it’s fought and how it ends.
Nick Willard is the pen name of a service member heading to Afghanistan on one of the final deployments in the closing days of America’s longest war. He will write what he sees in an ongoing feature for The Daily Beast that will appear as regularly as his schedule allows.
To speak openly and freely, to tell the American people and the world of readers on the web about the truth as he finds it, he has chosen not to use his real name.
