Afghan vet: 'What have we ended up with at the end of it?'
In this June 30, 2021, Los Angeles-based producer, actress and Marine Corps veteran Jennifer Brofer poses with her blog equipment at her apartment in Los Angeles. Brofer will never forget the loud, popping noise. It was on a hot July afternoon in 2010 when her convoy rolled over an IED on a road in Helmand Province four months into her deployment to Afghanistan. Her heart froze as she and her fellow Marines stopped and realized what had occurred. But what followed were only the sounds of daily life.
