Hayat Gul holds a picture of his deceased friend, 63-year-old Ghulam Ahad, as he tells his story in Budyali, Nangarhar province, Afghanistan. Gul was wounded and Ahad was killed in a gun battle ahead of a 2011 air assault on the village school they were guarding. Taliban fighters attacked the nearby district headquarters, then took refuge in the school. The Afghan National Army requested help from coalition forces, who responded with drones, fighter jets and rockets, leaving the school destroyed, according to village elders.
