Much of the news we hear from Afghanistan is bad: political corruption, fraudulent elections and casualties from the war.  But two veterans, just back from the country, say they saw a silver lining in Afghanistan's private sector.

Former Army officer Erik Malmstrom and former Marine officer Jake Cusack, traveled to Afghanistan as civilians recently, and toured local businesses and factories. Malmstrom and Cusack are both now graduate students at Harvard.

This segment aired on December 8, 2010.
