Military Times | Marines help coach Afghanistan’s first water polo team
Like many Marines, Chief Warrant Officer 3 Jeremy Piasecki was eager to go back to Afghanistan—but his motivation for doing so was a little different from that of his battle buddies.
In 2008, Piasecki, a personnel officer attached to U.S. Army Africa, introduced a group of Afghans to water polo. He recently returned there for a month to coach the Afghan National Water Polo Team, guiding a fledgling group of athletes as they dip their toes into sport and international competition.
