Pete Buttigieg: The greatest lesson I learned in Afghanistan Staff

While I was overseas in Afghanistan, the greatest lesson I learned wasn't about counterterrorism or geopolitics or scouting out the best food in the chow hall. It was learning to trust my life to people completely different from me. The military I belonged to drew people from all ages, racial backgrounds and regions of our country. In many ways, we had nothing in common except the fact that we were all American.
