Public Affairs in Action
U.S. Army Reserve soldier, Sgt. Edgar Valdez, 220th Public Affairs Detachment, conducts an interview during a food delivery mission, which is part of Hurricane Maria relief efforts, in Adjuntas, Puerto Rico on Oct. 6, 2017. Valdez is part of a public affairs team that has spent the past several days working with Army Reserve soldiers, under the guidance and request of local civil authorities, who are providing much needed supplies and resources to all of Puerto Rico. America’s Army Reserve can provide logistical, medical, and engineering support within hours of a disaster. Valdez is a public affairs professional and specializes in telling the Army Reserve story one mission at a time. (U.S. Army Reserve photo by Staff Sgt. Felix R. Fimbres)
