Longtime Bloomington journalist and author Douglas Wissing has been described as an adventurer. His three tours as an embedded reporter in Afghanistan have provided him with enough adventures to last a lifetime. He’s described what he’s seen in two books on America’s sixteen-year battle in history’s chronic battleground. His latest book, “Hopeless but Optimistic: Journeying Through America’s Endless War in Afghanistan,” is in bookstores now.
