TAMPA (2009-05-15) -

For the next 12 months, WUSF is following the deployment of USAF Senior Master Sergeant Rex Temple in Afghanistan.

The airman left from the Bay Area just over a week ago and he's keeping in touch with us as best he can through the Internet when he has access.

We last heard from him last week from Kyrgyzstan. He'd reached Afghanistan last Sunday and he has now settled in to his permanent home for the duration.

It's a spot we cannot identify or reach because there's no wireless Internet access at the moment.

That means notes and photos to his wife Liisa Hyvarinen Temple. She stopped by our studios Thursday to give us this update.

You can read more about his deployment on SMSgt. Temple's blog: Afghanistan My Last Tour.
