TAMPA (2009-06-05) -

It's been a deadly week in Afghanistan. Logistics prevented WUSF's weekly check-in with Air Force SMSgt. Rex Temple who deployed there May 5th.

But, his boss, Col. Larry Martin, Commander of MacDill Air Force Base's 6th Air Mobility Wing, talks with reporter Bobbie O'Brien about Temple's blog and the military's take on "social media."

WUSF is following Temple's year-long deployment to Afghanistan. SMSgt. Temple is also posting his experiences, photographs and previous news stories on his blog: Afghanistan My Last Tour.
