Another perspective

Michael Yon is a freelance journalist travelling with 1-24 Infantry, 25th Infantry Division also known as "Deuce-Four". I have been following his blog for a while and find his accounts from the frontline both gripping and honest.

In this particular story, Michael shares the story of time he spent in the city of Dohuk located in Northern Iraq. Dohuk's population is largely Kurdish, who have sought an independent state for decades suffered immensely under Saddam's regime. Michael's account of his time spent there is a refreshing contrast to the daily reports of car bombs and civillian casulaties. Stop by and give it a read. You'll be glad you did.

Yeah, Yon is a keeper. Read his past posts, too. Very sane and bright and uptone.

I'm a regular Yon reader too. Thanks for making others who read your blog aware of this very fine writer. Thanks for serving from a former Canadian soldier. Godspeed.
