The most recent project involves the construction of a new Sarkar school in Afghanistan. Some 35 villagers are working on the new school, which at the same time helps them earn money to feed their families.

Fuselier is a 1982 graduate of the Louisiana State University School of Veterinary Medicine. His career has included farm animal medicine and surgery in western North Carolina, public health work in rural Honduras, vascular research in Louisiana and small animal medicine and surgery in Louisiana and New Mexico.

Fuselier is joined in his career by his wife and fellow veterinarian, Susan Park Fuselier. They have three adult children and three grandchildren and have lived in Los Alamos since 1993.
