A soldier who served with the Washington National Guard’s 81st Brigade Combat Team is working to start a Veterans of Foreign Wars post in his hometown of Cleburne, Texas.

I wrote about Laureles when I was in Iraq earlier this year. He transfered to the Washington National Guard in 2003 from Texas so he could deploy and practice battlefield medicine. He had since bounced from unit to unit so he could stay continously in Iraq since.
