Local Hero Deploys for Afghanistan

Over a decade ago, U.S. troops first set foot in Afghanistan, and the day after America celebrated its Independence Day; military forces are still deploying to the region, including an Army soldier from Sarpy County, Cole Tesar.

Tesar is currently stationed at Ft. Polk in Louisiana with his wife Logan; the couple is expecting their first child in a couple of weeks. Tesar’s mother, Colette lives in Papillion.

Tesar's tour of duty is expected to last nine months.
