One of the surprising sounds at the Bagram Air Field in Afghanistan is the hum of freezers at the Dairy Queen on base. The man behind the counter is Manos Nepali. He is 21 years old, and has been living at Bagram for about two years. He’s from Nepal. He’s what the military calls a TCN, a third country national. That’s the term for workers on bases that are neither American nor from the base country.
