The Record was there every step of the way — with video, photos, stories and more — as the National Guard troops from the Teaneck Armory trained in Pennsylvania and Texas before being deployed.
Now, columnist Mike Kelly and staff photographer Tyson Trish are following the troops in Iraq for two weeks. Check back daily for posts and multimedia from Baghdad to the Green Zone.
MIKE KELLY has reported from such far-away spots as Belfast, Jerusalem, the West Bank, Gaza City, Malaysia, Kenya and the detention camps at Guantanamo Bay. The Record columnist is featured regularly on radio and TV and is the author of two books.
TYSON TRISH covers all kinds of assignments for The Record and logs hundreds of miles each week traversing Bergen and Passaic counties. He was born in Colorado, raised in California, schooled in Washington, D.C., and now calls the Garden State home.
