Brought together by circumstance, two men are serving their country in different ways, Capt. AJ Salazar as part of a legal team bringing justice to a war-torn country, and Lt. Eric Rudberg on the streets of Baghdad, bringing security to dangerous neighborhoods. Their meeting was a coincidence, but the friendship that grew out of it is invaluable to both men.When Councilor Jim Hall introduced Salazar to the council Oct. 30, there was more than a professional bond between the two men. “Capt. Salazar recently returned from his second tour of duty in Iraq, where he served as part of the team that prosecutes terrorists in Iraqi courts,” Hall said. “While he was there, he was able to come to the aid of my nephew, Eric Rudberg, who is serving in the Army there.”Salazar is the chief deputy district attorney in the First Judicial District and a captain in the U.S. Army Reserve. Hall and Salazar had spent some time talking about what role a district attorney might play in Los Alamos prosecutions a week before Salazar was deployed to Iraq in January. Hall told Salazar his son had been wounded in Iraq, and also that he had a nephew serving in the Army there.
