Afghan Soldiers Who Fled Cape Cod Feared Taliban Reprisal


The three Afghan soldiers who ditched a U.S. Army training camp in Massachusetts to seek asylum in Canada used a shopping trip to Wal-Mart as an opportunity to break for the border – running up more than $1,600 in cab fare on the 500-mile journey.

The men were on a break from their weeklong exercise at Camp Edwards on Cape Cod – shopping while other soldiers went to the beach – when they put their plan into action last month.
