Anthony C Heaford - Me

I’m a British army veteran of Afghanistan (2012, aged 42) who guarded opium harvesting, witnessed Afghan civilians forced by our allies to act as a human shield against a potential IEA, and who refused repeated orders to stone Afghan children as we patrolled through their villages. In a previous life, as a 27-year old civilian technician sent to 1997 Yemen, I met Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and visited The Base by Al Qa’idah town.
