Bruce Zielsdorf

For almost 40 years, Bruce Zielsdorf worked as a military journalist, newspaper editor and Army civilian public relations practitioner at locations around the globe. From drafting feature stories during the Vietnam era through coverage of the Lake Placid Olympics, he’s documented airmen at work worldwide through his writing, editing and photographic skills—an Air Force career that spanned 23 years.

Today, Bruce lives in Killeen, Central Texas. He retired a few years ago as the civilian public affairs director at Fort Hood. That was after serving 11 years as the Army’s spokesperson in the “media capital of the world”—New York City. Zielsdorf describes himself as a freelance writer and quality management consultant, pursuing a creative writing future in both fiction and non-fiction.
