A brief hello to fellow Dukes

Don Mosman ('85) reports from Iraq
Lt. Col. Don Mosman ('85)

Lt. Col. Don Mosman ('85)

Dateline: Oct. 2005

I'm currently on military leave from my job at Wachovia Securities and serving as a senior military adviser to an Iraqi infantry brigade. We've got a 10-man MiTT, or Military Transition Team, and we advise and train the commander and his staff. We also work with three battalion MiTT teams and a division team. We just concluded successful referendum operations, and we're taking the counterinsurgency fight to the anti-Iraq forces.

Go Dukes!
