A one day trip turned into a four day adventure at Bagram Air Field (BAF) for Senior Master Sgt. Rex Temple and his team. Their mission was to exchange five older Humvees for six refurbished mine-resistant vehicles or MRAPs.

The Tampa airman talks with WUSF’s Bobbie O’Brien about that mission and the big news of the week – the cancelation of Afghanistan’s run-off election.

WUSF is following Temple during his year-long deployment. To see photos and read Temple’s blog, “Afghanistan My Last Tour,” click here.
