Member of Fresno City Council returns from Navy

April 8, 2009 2:03:36 PM PDT
A member of the Fresno City Council has come home to serve his second term in office after being called to active duty in Germany and North Africa. Councilman Larry Westerlund was recalled by the Navy in February 2008.

He served in Germany, and with the Joint Special Operations Task Force for the Trans-Sahara, focusing on al-Qaida operations in northern Africa.

Despite the recall to duty, Westerlund won his second term while he was overseas in June.

Paul Caprioglio filled in on the council during Westerlund's leave of absence.
