Pfc. Michael Shipley, from Palmdale, Calif., makes the best of trying to sleep in a cramped armored vehicle while on a four-day mission to a remote village in eastern Afghanistan. The soldiers of Task Force 3-66 left comfort behind on this mission; they could sleep in warm cramped vehicles or stretch out while standing in two feet of snow outside.
