Day 214 - TV Clip: Alpha Company on Patrol

Several friends posted comments on yesterday’s blog, saying they saw Wayne interviewed last night on WLBT-TV Channel 3 in Jackson, MS. As you might imagine, Wayne talks about about KIDS and SHOES!

Look in the right column of WLBT’s web site under “Featured Videos.” Wayne is the last soldier interviewed on the clip, 150th Engineers: Alpha Company on Patrol.
