KABUL, AFGHANISTAN - NOVEMBER 1, 2005: Private security contractor Kyle Kaszynski (R), a police officer on leave from his job at the St. Paul Police Department, waits for his pay in Kabul, Afghanistan. Kaszynski works for the private military company Crucible providing security for U.S. State Department contractors in Afghanistan. Kaszynski's decision to work as a private security contractor was based upon a combination of a feeling of patriotic duty, a desire for action, and the ability to make a lot of money. Kaszynski was able to make more than double his police salary. Kaszynski was killed on December 22, 2005, just a few weeks after this photo was taken, while working for Crucible in Iraq. Kaszynski had been transferred from Afghanistan only a few weeks before his death. The U.S. endeavor in both Afghanistan and Iraq relies heavily on the services these hired guns provide.
