Jimmie Mckinney, a veteran who has served in four combat tours, one in Iraq and three to Afghanistan, has completed his new book “Lessons Not Learned from Afghanistan”: a revealing and insightful glimpse at author’s own opinions with the operations and policies that were attempting to be implemented.

Mckinney writes, “It was designed as a new initiative to conduct counterinsurgency operations at the lowest levels (villages) within the Afghanistan and Pakistan area of operation by training a new group of culturally sensitive military leaders with a focus on building a sense of cooperation and inclusion among the villages where special forces units operated and wanted to maintain freedom of movement. It was an initiative designed to win the hearts and minds of the local Afghan people and their local level leaders to garner support for their new government and the new Afghan police and military that would need to freely maneuver within these areas as a way of deterring growth and infiltration of insurgents into these critical areas.”

Published by Page Publishing, Jimmie Mckinney’s engaging chronicle is an eye-opening account of the endless attempts to support and assist leaders who were unwelcoming to the change and outside influence.

The author shares his first-hand account as an Afghanistan/Pakistan Hand (AFPAK Hand) member working in Afghanistan to train, advise, and assist the new government’s national defense institutions on how to properly plan, program, budget, and execute funding in support of military and policing operations.

Readers who wish to experience this fascinating work can purchase “Lessons Not Learned from Afghanistan” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
