VPR’s Steve Zind is in Afghanistan with the Vermont National Guard. Among those he’s met is a Specialist Alexander Kelly.
Kelly left a job working at a bar and grill in Essex to deploy to Afghanistan.
Now his experience there has him thinking about a new career. Kelly gave us a tour of his medical lab at Camp Phoenix in Kabul. It’s part of the troop medical clinic staffed by a Vermont Guard brigade based in Winooski.
