SOUTH BEND - South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg is half-way through his orders to serve in Afghanistan.  That's according to a post on his Facebook Page.

The mayor posted the following on Friday:  Afghanistan remains one of the world's poorest countries. Some humanitarian volunteers I work with here have said these notebooks are in particularly high demand for children's educational purposes. If you find a good deal on some, feel free to send to:
Peter Buttigieg
APO, AE 09356

FOX28's Traci Capellman spoke to the mayor before his deployment in February.  Mayor Buttigieg was commissioned as an officer in 2009.  Last September, he received a promotion to Lieutenant, but he also learned he'd be deployed to Afghanistan for seven months.  He left South Bend on February 28th.
