(Host) Today we mark Veteran's Day with a profile of one of the Vermont Guard Soldiers preparing to return home from Afghanistan.

Twenty-three-year-old Specialist Corinne Vintinner of Burlington is a medic. She's also been the only woman at Combat Outpost Rahman Kheil in Paktya Province. The outpost is manned by a Vermont Guard infantry company.

On his recent trip to Afghanistan, VPR's Steve Zind sat down with Specialist Vintinner who told him she joined the guard on an impulse.
