Report From Afghanistan

VPR/Steve Zind
1st Sgt. Eric Duncan at Combat Outpost Raman Kheil

1st Sergeant Eric Duncan of Northfield commands Vermont soldiers at a joint combat outpost named Raman Kheil in Paktya province in Afghanistan. It's where the Vermont Guard's Delta Company is based.

The outpost is located in an area where the insurgency is still active. Until recently the base was regularly fired upon and just last week a number of roadside bombs were found near the base. One was struck by a Vermont Guard convoy - disabling one vehicle and slightly injuring a soldier.

VPR's Steve Zind is in Afghanistan with the guard and a few days ago he sat down with 1st Sergeant Duncan.
