Michael Tomberlin usually serves his community by being a trusted journalist with the Birmingham News. But Mike and his fellow soldiers in the Alabama 167th National Guard unit are about to take the trust of their country with them to Afghanistan.
Mike was kind enough to do a quick video interview with us in the hot Birmingham sun on Memorial Day. It was the on the rededication of the Rainbow Bridge, named in honor of the same Alabama 167th that won honors in the Battle of Croix Rouge in France during World War I. The current 167th took their Memorial Day to honor their predecessors and prepare to carry on the mission. http://youtu.be/_nVeUPPSI68
