Dolls

From the soldier who contributed this photo:

 

“We went out today and I had a chance to take two dolls. I have to wait for the perfect moment to hand them out. I don’t think the boys want them so I looked for a girl of the right age. I also avoid handing things out when other kids are around. They tend to mass on you and its hard to tell if they are stealing your gear. They also will fight the other kids for stuff they want.

 

Anyway, I was leaning on a wall and a little girl and her brother were walking down the path on the other side. I took the bear out and handed it to her. She looked like she was so surprised and happy she didnt know what to do. She ran over to a friend of mine and just stared at the bear. Then she turned around and quickly ran home with her prize. I tried to get her photo but she was too quick. i got one shot and its far off.”
