My friend is a journalist reporting from Iraq....
Advertisements [?]
My friend from video school is going to be in Iraq for a month embedded with the Ft. Wainwright Stryker Brigade (1st Brigade, 25th Infantry Division). Her name is Jessica Hoffman and her is her first report, which is a little about herself and tells how she got involved in this expedition. -Bill

Hello From Jessica

I have lived in Alaska for most of my life. My dad was in the Army and was stationed at Fort Wainwright and later at Fort Greely. We also spent a short time in Massachusetts. But, most of my childhood memories involve living and going to school in the Fort Greely/Delta Junction area.

In 1999, I graduated high school and moved to Seattle, Washington to attend college at the Art Institute of Seattle. I graduated in 2001 with an associate of applied arts degree in video production.

In Seattle, I worked for a variety of productions companies. Most of my jobs were as a camera operator but I also worked as an assistant editor, engineer, Chyron operator, AV technician, and technical director.

In November of 2003, I moved back to Alaska to work for ECIII, a contractor for Cold Regions Test Center at Fort Greely as a videographer. My primary duty was to document the testing of military and civilian equipment.
