The section escorts cartographer assistant Cpl. Jessica Peters on a mission to survey and map village streets north of Kandahar City. It's her first tour of duty, and both Chucky and Dean find themselves smitten by her, and very eager to help her 'acclimatize' to Afghanistan.

About The Show
Created by Greg Nelson, Adam Pettle, Andrew Moodie and Jason Sherman.
Afghanada gives us a grunts-eye perspective of the war in Afghanistan. 3 -1 Bravo is a Canadian Forces light infantry section fighting with NATO forces deep in the heart of the conflict. Every day, Sgt. Pat Kinsella (Jenny Young), Private Dean Donaldson (Paul Fauteux) and Private Lucas Manson (Billy Maclellan), confront the chaos and violence of life "outside the wire."
Based on actual events on the ground in Kandahar, each week's episode takes the listener on an intense and compelling auditory journey, an unadorned reflection of the very real life and death situations Canadian soldiers face every day in Afghanistan.
