My good friend and sometimes contributing blogger, LTC Paul Fanning was recently profiled in the Schenectady, NY Daily Gazette. Paul is the NY State Public Affairs Officer and deployed to Afghanistan with the 27th BCT to serve as the Task Force Phoenix VII Public Affairs Officer.

“During his deployment, Fanning wrote a blog for The Daily Gazette. In 30 entries, he shared his impressions of daily life in Afghanistan and told stories about the soldiers. He said it’s difficult for people in the Capital Region to understand what’s going on in Afghanistan or how the U.S. military and National Guard are trying to rebuild the country, which is about the size of Texas.”
