Local soldier serves as liason

Army reservist Sergeant Josh Miller recently returned from Afghanistan where he served as a civil affairs liaison between the military and the local population.

The 2000 Glen Este graduate said he was focused on grass roots efforts to build infrastructure and promote local businesses in the Kunar Province near the Pakistan border.

“There’s a big push for renewable energy. It’s more expensive to start but it’s easier to maintain,” Miller said. “We also provide business development micro-grants.”
