Jeremy in Afghanistan

A shout-out to TNOR and Laurentian alumni sprinter, Jeremy Lajeunesse, who's currently posted with the armed forces out of the Kandahar air field in Afganistan.

Jeremy's job is planning how to support all the forward elements in the province, including planning for fuel, ammo, rations, convoy schedules, air replenishment etc. A LOT of responsibility.

Jeremy is still running to stay fit - usually at 5:00 AM.

Get back home safe, Jeremy!!
