Behind big events there is fate of little people. Sometimes they play an important role, sometimes minor, and happens and so what it is very difficult to understand – and how it left? Why to this person there was it? Here to you history, believe it or not.
I have a neighbor, the veteran of Afghanistan. One lives, quietly, peacefully, doesn't brawl, always greets. Especially I don't communicate with him, just happens nails I will ask or we will discuss weather.
It happened once to housing and public utilities to arrange repair at our entrance. Whitewashing, painting. In the first day, after a lunch, I have noticed that painters, fairly boozy and sitting on steps, discuss degree of mutual respect.
— … wake me in 100 years, and here drink and steal — I have murmured, passing by — the Mess.
The neighbor rose afterwards and, probably, has heard me.
— It, not the mess, so, nonsense — has laughed it — Pay a visit, I will tell you what is complete chaos.
I have agreed. Have settled down in kitchen, and here that he has told me …
When he served in Avhan, the ambassador of a number of fighting, he together with a platoon was thrown somewhere to mountains, to hold a defensive post. Around on many tens of kilometers there were neither villages, nor uniform live soul, except the alleged enemy.

They have spent about two years there, without deciding to leave a post, and nobody behind them has arrived. For several kilometers the river was found, the source of water and fish, the sniper went shooting to live. Well, wildness full. During all the time a uniform skirmish with the enemy.

Having been chosen from others earth, soldiers have learned that war has come to an end, and home have sent them death notifications" with news of loss without message. s wife, having lost hope, I married another, children together with her live in other city.
Neither family, nor the Homeland the person didn't have …
Frankly speaking, I haven't especially believed in his history, hardly I represent that it was possible to forget about the whole group and that this group didn't leave two years a post. Here only … already when left, I have noticed that at him all corridor is forced by canisters with water. On a question — What for? — he has answered — the Habit from Avhan. Even I don't know, to trust or not.
