AFGHANISTAN (2009-07-27) -

A day off - even while bivouacked in war-torn Afghanistan - is a chance to unwind for Air Force Senior Master Sgt. Rex Temple.

His reading material comes mostly from the internet. During his down-time, Temple is studying up on COIN - an acronym for counter insurgency strategy. But he also kicks-off his combat boots - so to speak.

This is Temple's tenth overseas assignment. On previous tours, he became adept at darts. So, when he arrived in Afghanistan in May and found a dart board at his camp, one of his first requests home was to have his wife mail over his darts. But he's yet to compete in a dart tournament.
