I received an email from Dave Hecht, formerly of NBC 24. He's been out of TV for three or four years and on active duty with the Navy. As he said in his note, "I'm loving it although life is a little hard right now. I'm in Afghanistan, been here for six months and just extended for another four."
If you'd like to follow along with his experiences and support a local sailor, you can do so on his blog, My Afghanistan Journal.
