Mr. Brickey will be deployed in Bell for the rest of January and then to Fort Bliss, Tex., for three weeks of training. After that, he will be gone for nine months as a public affairs officer in the Middle East. His unit will work with nations in that region to resettle refugees from over a decade of conflict.
