contact at 82nd airborne in afghanistan?

do you know anybody from the 82nd airborne that could help me out to arrange embeds in afghanistan.
i spoke with centcom paos ( an ltc among the many) and they told me that they cut down embeds to a maximum of 10 days.
what do you think?

Guy, the best way to embed with 82nd is to email SPC Jeremy French at Fort Bragg, 82nd’s Public Affairs wing. Jerermy.french@us.army.mil
Good luck!

Hello Mr. Calaf,

My name is Spc. Laura Griffin. I am with the PAO in Salerno, Afghanistan (home away from home for the 82nd). I realize that you have probably already spoken to people in Kabul or Bagram, but try calling LTC O’Hara in Bagram or LTC Yoshioka in Kabul (contact me via a private email from my lightstalkers site for their phone numbers). You can also try contacting Scott Eells (or at least look at his lightstalkers site here where he has some helpful instructions posted) for help with Kabul. Scott just finished his embed a couple of weeks ago.

I hope that I can be of further assistance to you if you have not already found the help that you needed. If you are successful in getting an embed with the 82nd, then chances are good that we will meet soon.

Take care,
