These guys are bunked way too close for no one else to ever find out.

If Wile E. Coyote was a photographer,
this is the type of nonsense I would expect . . .

No, we are going to shoot it anyway. She had read this thread with me and if she sends the photos to him now or waits until he returns is up to her, I did tell her to think about waiting.

Last time I checked, we still live in a free country. Problem is, Afghanistan isn't.
This means you're going to have to get creative...
What if you took the series of photos and made just one that isn't "objectinable" per local standards. Just send that ONE picture and attach a note that says, there are more pictures he can see when he gets home.
Not saying this is THE answer. Just saying that you should think "outside the box" on this.
The think that disturbs me more is if the poor high-ranking officer husband is going to have some bad days, or a damage to his personal career, reputation etc. because of this brilliant idea of his wife.
I would say: ask the husband. Isn't he the boss in the family?
If he says "go on", go on.
If he says "go on but keep the photograph within homeland", go on but keep the photograph.
If he says "you want to make me ridiculous thinking that I need a nude picture of my wife for whatever reason which I will not even mention, then just don't", just don't.
OK there is no more "surprise effect" but I think that would be more considerate.
And in any case one can make a picture, scan it and send it by some electronic means so that he can keep this picture in his smartphone, if he feels so inclined.

It's up to them, their judgement, and their ethics now.
Wow... things sure must have changed over the years. In my Italian immigrant family it has been the woman running the family.

I totally understand and stand by your husband's opinion, BTW... except the part of trying to ensure that everyone"does the right thing". At some point there is no helping those who have been worned, trained, inspected... and still choose to do the wrong thing. We can try though... and that's been the overwhelming intent of this thread. It's up to them now to do what is right... in whatever way they see fit to do that.
Yes, that is true. I didn't know that was unique to Southern Italy and Sicily. Thanks for the education. Now Momma is hitting me with a broom so I must go do a chore.
