It's like a premonition when he thinks about it deeply enough, like he can still somehow go back to Afghanistan and change what happened.
It was just before noon June 8, 2013. The Americans were wrapping up two hours of advising Afghan National Army partners at a forward operating base in the Zarghun Shahr District of Paktika province.
It had been a quiet, almost peaceful Saturday morning at "Super FOB," recalled Maj. Matt Smith, an astute, highly respected artillery officer with 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 10th Mountain Division (LI).
