Yep, the Chronicle finally figured out that state Rep. Rick Noriega was in Afghanistan, as opposed to Iraq:
Houston state Rep. Rick Noriega spent a year 8,000 miles away and got a new perspective on his life back home.

Ah well, today’s story by Kristen Mack and Judith Torrea on Rep. Noriega’s return is interesting reading and we’re glad he’s home safely.
