Tennessee Army National Guard soldiers spent a year teaching Afghanistan soldiers how to protect their country from insurgents filtering in through Pakistan, a guard major said. Soldiers who join the Afghanistan army by age 6 learned basic lessons ranging from artillery training, squad tactics and technology, said Guard Maj. Eric Goslowsky of Murfreesboro. Goslowsky explained the mission Tuesday to members of the Stones River Chapter of the Sons of the American Revolution. He used photographs and maps to show the "dirt poor" but beautifully scenic country where soldiers earn $1,500 a year and civilians earn $600 a year.
