Highly Recommended Link . . .
I’ll quickly add one more thought before calling it a night. You all should definitely check out Michael Yon’s online magazine (there is also a link under “Andrew’s Favorites”). Mr. Yon is embedded with the 1st Battalion, 24th Infantry Regiment (commonly known as the “Deuce Four”). He is a first-rate author and photographer. While so much of the news coming out of Iraq is politicized and, most often, bad, he tells it like it is, and often it is good news that he reports (and he’s certain we’re winning, despite the terrible costs he witnesses first-hand). Mr. Yon doesn’t sugar coat his reports, so they are stark and poignant, but also very interesting and refreshing.
