Webster alum and author, Leonard H. Le Blanc III recently had an excerpt from his ebook, Afghanistan: Lashkar Gah, Home of the Warriors (One Year in Opium Country), featured on Time Magazine’s website. In his work, Le Blanc shares the experiences he had in 2007 during his time as an adviser to an Afghan-led counter-narcotics team.
Le Blanc, who holds both an MA in Management (’89) and an MA in International Relations (’03) from Webster, has previously served in the U.S. Air Force and U.S. Navy and held international management positions in several countries including Iraq, Afghanistan, Bosnia, and Kuwait. Most recently he held the title of Group Chaiman for the Bin Hatem Holding Corporation located in Bangkok, Thailand before retiring and devoting himself to writing full-time. Le Blanc is a married father of two and proud Webster alum.
“I have always been very proud to tell anyone I am a graduate of Webster University,” said Le Blanc. “My degrees have repaid me many times over.”
