Oklahoma Voices: Conversation with a Soldier Headed to Iraq (Oct 14, 2007)
This Thursday, a farewell ceremony will be held at the University of Oklahoma’s Lloyd Noble Center for 2400 soldiers with the Oklahoma National Guard’s 45th Infantry Brigade. They’re headed for training at Fort Bliss, Texas in advance of a January deployment to Iraq. Next time on Oklahoma Voices we begin a series of reports profiling members of the Brigade.

30-year-old Specialist Terry “Scooby” Axson is a recent University of Oklahoma graduate who’s been working with the Brigade’s Public Affairs Office. We spend a half hour speaking with him about his journalism background, his experience in the military and what lies ahead. We hope to occasionally check back in with him and other members of the 45th throughout their year-long deployment.
