Yeah going to Afghanistan is a vacation getaway..

The Afghanistan part of the trip is what I labeled "vote buying".  She gets to pop in and out, fully ensconced in a luxurious security bubble, with nary a single worry, and then come back and tell everyone how she supports the troops.  And before you bring up Trump's trip to Iraq, don't forget that he's the CiC and she's not.
