Hello from Afghanistan

Afghanistan, officially the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, is a landlocked country located in the centre of Asia. It is bordered by Pakistan in the south and the east, Iran in the west, Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan and Tajikistan in the north, and China in the far northeast.

From the back of the postcard:
“A typical day in Afghanistan. US forces share a meal with Afghan officials; the Afghanistan flag flutters above the palace of President Hamid Karzai in Kabul; a man guides his donkey along a street; children share a laugh with troops outside a Combat Operating Post.”

The label says “mailed from APO. AE 09320”. APO are the initials from Army Post Office. And 09320 indicates that the postcard is sent from a military camp in Kabul.
