Col Steven A. Boylan Army Spokesman

We have been following his career since we saw him on AFN TV in Korea in 2000. At that time LTC Boylan was stationed in Japan. Around 2002 he was lightly wounded by an knife-assailent in Korea who was upset about a well-publicised incident involving traffic fatalities (female pedestrians) caused by US personnel.

In 2004 LTC Boylan was stationed in Iraq. That cannot have been uneventful!

2009-2010 he was the Public Affairs Officer at Ft Levenworth Kansas. See his medals.
