Purchased this because our son and some friends are in the military stationed in Afghanistan and we wanted to know 'where in Afghanistan' they were. I also purchased one for the wife and young son of one of our friends stationed there and it has made the absence of the Father much easier on the young son.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
