Doing my best impersonation of a Somali militiaman (and catching the wrath of my wife for riding in the bed of an Iraqi police pickup) in Diyala earlier this year.

After 3 1/2 years at The News Tribune (including the last year and a half on the military beat) I’ll be leaving the paper next week.  My wife and I both received jobs in Washington, D.C., so I’m in the midst of packing up our home in University Place ahead of the big move.  My last day at the paper is April 9.

Thanks to all who have read my articles and blog posts over the past few years. I tried to respond to each piece of feedback — positive, negative or otherwise — and was encouraged by every e-mail and phone call.

I don’t know who my replacement on the beat will be, but I do know this paper considers it among the top jobs in the newsroom. The News Tribune will continue to bring you the best and most military coverage in Washington state.

    I’m sorry I never got to meet you in person. Good luck in Washington. I’ll shoot you a facebook message when I hit up DINFOS at Fort Meade, MD this summer.

    I too am sorry not to have met you in person while you were over here, and I still have a coin for you and Joe waiting to be mailed…We’ve been slammed with cases.
    Thanks for your EXCELLENT reporting on all aspects of our military community, and for joining us downrange. Best of luck to you and your spousal unit with your new jobs!
