The unit served as the Agribusiness Development Team, helping Afghan farmers improve their techniques and develop cash crops to replace opium poppies.

Michael served as a liaison between the military and civilian authorities and was believed to be the first spouse of a governor to serve on active duty in a war zone.

He also served as South Carolina’s first gentleman from 2011 to 2017 after his wife became the state’s first female governor.

What did Michael say about his year-long business trip?

In 2016, Michael explained how difficult it was being away from his family during his year-long tour of duty.

Alongside a series of dramatic stories from the front lines, he explained how he stayed in touch with Nikki via email every day.

He said: “Much is lost in translation.

“You don’t get the emotion, the humor, that you get when you’re talking in person on the phone or being there physically.”

Michael described what it was like hearing about family activities after they happened as “looking back in the rearview mirror at your life over the past year.”

What did Nikki Haley say about Donald Trump?

Nikki previously vowed she would “never” face Donald Trump before their relationship fell apart.

She made startling remarks about the former president after the Capitol riot, saying she believes he “let us down”.

“We have to acknowledge that he let us down,” Nikki, who served as ambassador under Trump, told Politico.

“He walked a path he shouldn’t have walked and we shouldn’t have followed him and we shouldn’t have listened to him. And we must not allow that to happen again.”

The mother-of-two claimed she has not spoken to Trump since the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the US Capitol.

“When I say I’m angry, that’s an understatement,” Nikki said. She added her disappointment in Trump for condemning his own Vice President, Mike Pence.

“I’m so disappointed that [despite] the loyalty and friendship he had with Mike Pence that he would do this to him. I’m disgusted with that.”

In the days immediately after the attack, Nikki said in a speech to members of the Republican National Committee that Trump was “very wrong in what he said” at his Jan. 6 rally.

“And it wasn’t just his words. His actions since Election Day will be judged harshly by history.”

However, after Nikki publicly signaled her intention to run for the presidency in 2024, she reportedly got in touch with her former boss.

Trump welcomed the competition and encouraged her to go through with her bid for the White House.
