Big brother

There are a couple of "aerostats" positioned in Kabul, providing God knows what kinds of visual and electronic surveillance.

I was calling them "balloons", but the Air Force officers on the team corrected me. Turns out they're "aerostats". Interesting.

I still call them "balloons", though, mainly to get under their skin. We are on the same team, but Marines have a reputation for belligerence to uphold, and I am only doing my part.
