Va. House clerk headed to Afghanistan

By Washington Post editors

The deputy clerk of the Virginia House of Delegates, an Army reservist, has been called to active duty and will soon be deployed for a year-long tour in Afghanistan, reporter Rosalind Helderman tells us over at the Virginia Politics blog.

In an e-mail to delegates and legislative staff, House Clerk Bruce Jamerson wrote that Deputy Clerk for Committee Operations Scott Maddrea has been a reservist for the past 20 years, most recently serving as an instructor at the Army's Command and General Staff College. But Maddrea's primary training is as a military policeman, and he is being deployed overseas in that capacity.

Maddrea's last day at the Capitol is Thursday; he is expected to be absent until Labor Day 2011, meaning he'll miss the 2011 legislative session and any special sessions that are held in the next year.

I wish him a safe deployment, and that he comes back for that session (or before) in one piece.

Having been there and done that, that is what each of us pray for.
