Speaking of Marines, there's a great article at Stars & Stripes about "rough living" with the Marines of Company L, 3rd Battalion, 6th Marine Regiment at Combat Outpost Coutu in Helmand. No cots, no showers, no toilets and no electricity. They share 2 sat phones. And they've been there for almost a month. “I feel like a pioneer in the 1800s,” says one Marine. Nice photo essay, too.
