stories from mosul
You may or may not have heard of Michael Yon, who's a reporter embedded with the "Deuce Four," a military unit in Iraq. He's blogging from there, posting every now and then with pictures and stories of what's going on. What he's writing gives a particularly human element to the war. Yesterday he posted a great (long) story about some fighting that went down with some terrorists and the guys he's with. It's a pretty compelling read. Also, from my perspective, a welcome change from the usual stuff you hear about the war. Check out this post and you can learn why this guy (that's CSM Prosser, not the reporter) is all bloody, and who the man on the ground next to him is. The stresses and whatnot that these soldiers go through are pretty incredible.
