Michael Yon: Gates of Fire

via Blackfive, i found this superb piece of combat reporting by the incomparable michael yon. these are some card-carrying tough guys. i hope this story gets incorporated as a vignette (i hate that word) in any or all of the formal schools in the Army and Marine Corps. there are more lessons here than i can pack into one post.

Yon's way with words when describing our fighting men is incredible and his photography is amazing. He gets into the thick of things like nobody's done since Ernie Pyle. He does the brave heroes he covers proud.
