He serves two masters, the US Department of State and Department of Defense. Sometimes it is difficult to please both entities. Bob and his close friend Jake Wilson help each other in accomplishing their mission while maintaining good morale for both. The corruption they see while in the mission is sometimes mind boggling and makes them wonder if it is worth their effort to train the Afghans.
