Military columnist Joseph Galloway will be syndicated individually by Knight Ridder Tribune News Service rather than as part of the KRT package starting April 1.
“He’s one of the best in writing about the military,” said KRT Op-Ed Editor Ray Walker, when asked why Galloway’s column is being sold separately. Walker didn’t have early client figures, but said the feature “is especially popular in newspapers near military bases.”
Galloway, whose opinion column began with KRT last June, is a Bronze Star winner who did four tours of duty in Vietnam as a United Press International reporter, covered the first Gulf War, and co-authored “We Were Soldiers Once … and Young” (later a Mel Gibson movie).
