The Arizona Department of Corrections is investigating the
suspicious death of a 22-year-old man who was found dead this week
at the Arizona State Prison-Tucson, officials said.
I’m home. I (finally) arrived in Tucson on Thursday, after six
long days in transit. Not that I’m complaining – it’d be kind of
like griping about the unfairness of your life while you’re sitting
So, here I am with my two compadres – the last of the “original”
Joint Base Balad public affairs team. We’re at that place where
people like us finally catch a flight out of Southwest Asia and
back to the States.
I was listening to "Yellow Ledbetter" on my computer the other
day, and I realized how well it matched my general mood these
A week ago, Joint Base Balad hosted 100-plus Iraqi boys and
girls for a fun-slash-educational day right in the big housing
complex where I live here. It was the second event of its kind --
the first with girls included -- so, of course, I was there to
cover the story.
People who are using last week's deadly shootings at Fort Hood,
Texas, as an excuse to criticize immigrants - especially those in

Again, I feel like it's been too long since my last entry, but
sometimes, I think that's a good thing. In a place like this, the
"interesting" events and issues I'm inspired to write about tend to
carry some kind of sad or negative connotation.
Even eight years after 9/11, plenty of service members still try
their damnedest to deploy. If you ask them why they want to go,
you'll get a variety of answers: It's a great way to save a bunch
of money. They need a break from their home-base office drama.
They're volunteering for one deplo…
I got called to cover a story over at the hospital again the
other day. The e-mail soliciting our public-affairs services only
said something about a great story involving a "14YO."
Well, it's been too long since I've posted anything here…and I
don't have any great excuses. For two weeks after my last entry, I
just couldn't think of anything interesting to write about. Then,
my wife and son went on a long trip to the Midwest to see family.
Free of the day-job (and day-c…
Every day I wake up at 0400, make my way to the recreation
center, and hook up to the stronger internet connection there. The
reward is a few precious minutes of my son’s attention, along with
the needed comfort of talking to my wife “face-to-face.” We usually
end the call in good spirits, w…
I got to work yesterday already feeling buried with tasks that
needed my attention. Then, before I could get three sips from my
fresh cup of coffee, the phone rang. I was summoned to cover a
story at the Air Force Theater Hospital right away. I knew there
was a VIP touring the facility, but …
So, this is what it’s like to be a military journalist at
Arrival here at Joint Base Balad has been hectic, but
reassuring. I’ve been here about a week now. I’m part of an
11-person team assigned to provide journalism, photography,
videography, broadcasting and external media support for the joint
mission here. The work is plentiful – especially wh…
