LUBBOCK, Texas– A former KAMC News reporter recently wrote a political opinion article for CNN after reports that the United States left Afghanistan.

Nick Ochsner, chief investigative reporter at WBTV in Charlotte, North Carolina, said his father served four tours in Afghanistan and was killed by a roadside bomb in 2005, according to CNN.

Ochsner’s father, SFC James Ochsner, said, “as much as he loved being a soldier, my dad loved the mission, and the people he was fighting for.”

Ochsner shared what his thoughts were on his thoughts of the war in Afghanistan ending nearly 16 years after his father died.
