-A A +A

Army Col. Fred V. Manzo, son of Fred V. Manzo Sr. of Bolivia, is returning to the Air War College at Maxwell Air Force Base, Gunter Annex, Montgomery, Ala., after being deployed to Afghanistan serving in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.

Enduring Freedom is the official name given to anti-terrorism military operations involving U.S. troops and allied coalition partners. Reserve component members from all branches of the U.S. armed forces have been mobilized, activated and deployed along with active duty members to support the war against global terrorism. Mission objectives encompass combating the international terrorist network or regime forces outside the borders of the United States. U.S. troops serve in South and Southwest Asia, Central Asia, the Arabian peninsula, the Horn of Africa, islands in the Pacific, and Europe.

Manzo, an advisor to the deputy minister of defense assigned to the home unit only, Afghanistan, has served in the military for 24 years. He earned a bachelor’s degree in 1986 from the U.S. Military Academy.
