AFN-Iraq Signs Off
September 26, 2011 at 3:54 AM (PT)
The AMERICAN FORCES NETWORK has closed down its local IRAQ service after almost eight years. STARS AND STRIPES reports that "FREEDOM RADIO" closed down FRIDAY night with PORKY PIG's "That's all, folks" sign-off following TOBY KEITH's "Courtesy of the Red, White and Blue."
The station was staffed primarily of Reserve troops from the 206th Broadcast Operation Detachment, based in TEXAS. AFN will continue to be available to troops in IRAQ via programming from AFN EUROPE in GERMANY.
