A man in full

Star Tribune metro columnist Katherine Kersten devotes her column to an excellent profile of my colleague Peter Swanson on the occasion of his return to active duty to serve in Iraq. Kathy takes a look at a few of Peter’s skirmishes, including one dating back to his senior year in high school. Kathy’s profile follows up on our own “Salute to Major Swanson” last month.
