I'll be heading to the USS Ronald Reagan (somewhere in the Middle East area of operations) for special broadcasts the week of August 17. Presented by the San Diego Air & Space Museum's Technology Center, Museum President/CEO Jim Kidrick and I will provide special exclusive shows weekdays 7-9AM Pacific (August 18-24) from onboard the San Diego-based ship. The 6,000 members of Reagan Strike Group (and Carrier Airwing 14) are currently supporting our Marines who are fighting the Taliban in Afghanistan. That country is also set to have its presidential election while we're over there, so things could get very interesting. Don't miss our special direct broadcasts on 1170AM KCBQ in San Diego and Daily programs will also be posted on the podcasts, available by clicking "Larson on Demand" in the rightside menu. We're honored to have this opportunity to support our troops and encourage their loved ones back at home. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers while we're away.

Explore reports and photos from my first trip to the region on USS Ronald Reagan's maiden deployment and on the ground in Afghanistan: Just go to the archives on LarsonBlog, com, scrolling down to MARCH 2006. You can also see updates from my earlier trip, covering Iraq and the Persian Gulf in the SEPTEMBER 2005 section.
