The term “war zone” took on a whole new meaning for Philadelphia PR professional Major Sean Clements, USMC when he left on a seven-month tour as a director of public affairs in Iraq.
Maj. Clements discussed the role PR plays in the military, especially during wartime, captivating us with stories of leading a team of combat journalists and photographers, managing embedded media during the battle of Fallujah, and even supervising an Iraqi polling site on election day.
