WTOK-TV said farewell Friday to sales associate Kendrick Traylor, a member of the Afghan National Army-Embedded Training Team.
That task force will actually train the new Afghan Army.
"It's a job we all chose to do. By wearing the uniform, this is what we basically said, this is what we will do if we were ever called," said Traylor. "And this is what we trained for. And you know, right now, it's show time."
This if Traylor's second deployment. He will serve no less than a year in Afghanistan. Newscenter 11 and WTOK wish him well.
