    Hello,

    This is actually a permissions inquiry for your publication/webmaster.

    I served with both 12648 Cdr Mike Burke and 13846 LCol Kevin Bryski during 2008 when we were assigned to HQ of the Afghan Regional Security Integration Command – South in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

    You have a photo of them both on your website (http://everitas.rmcclub.ca/?p=1950).

    Can I use this photo on my Facebook Page?

    Thank you.

    Lieutenant Colonel Richard J. Sloma, New York Army National Guard
