TAMPA (2009-05-08) -

Senior Master Sgt. Rex Temple left Tampa Tuesday for a year's deployment to Afghanistan. Early Friday afternoon Florida time, the airman checked in with WUSF during a layover at a US military base in Kyrgystan. He had enough time to explore the local library, play a game of "combat volleyball" and grab a shower.

His computer battery gave out. But you can read more about his travels and the local Kyrgystan culture on SMSgt. Temple's blog: Afghanistan My Last Tour.
