Lets hear it for Marine General Joseph Dunford  who is now taking charge of  US and NATO forces in Afghanistan.  This will be the final stretch of the more than 11 year-old war and Dunford will be running troops.  The general has Southie ties – he lived at the corner of O & Broadway and his father Joseph Dunford was a deputy superintendent with the Boston Police Department. 

Thank you General Joseph Dunford for all you do!
