This week, we're interviewing a man you know as, Dr. Alan Kao. He's our veterinarian each Friday at Noon on Ask the Expert.

However, this week, he came to us as Lt. Col. Alan Kao from the 179th Medical Group out of Mansfield, Ohio.

Back in March, he took a trip to a part of Africa heavy in the battle with Boko Haram terrorists. During his effort to inoculate Africans and animals, he was flanked by heavily-armed anti-terrorism fighters.

This is the story about his work and what he believes is still left to be done.
