Apache Assistant AD Leaving For Iraq

From battles on the football field to the battle overseas.

One TJC staff member will soon protect the Iraqi skies and borders. Apache assistant athletic director Chuck Smith will be deployed to Iraq next month.

Chuck is a member of the Air Force Reserves he reports to base over the Labor Day weekend.

"I just kind of took a lot of this summer to really look at what we have here, what we enjoy here," Chuck said. "Not take anything for granted, especially the athletes, the student athletes. Enjoy doing the sports, enjoy the time. Keep your heart in it, keep your head in it."

Chuck said after duty is served in Iraq, he plans to return to his job at TJC, sometime next year.
