The must read of the entire month

... with pics! No other reporter currently on the ground in Iraq tells it the way it is. Many journalists have been in-country, and a few are even pretty good, but no one can touch Michael Yon.

I wrote in my journal shortly after a mortar attack on our position in 2003 that, "Nothing scares me more than indirect fire. The casual, random nature of "death by artillary" fills me with such dread, I actually prefer taking a bullet. At least I could shoot back if the enemy was close enough to hit me with a well aimed shot."

Caught in a firefight, armed with only a camera, Mike recounts a similar frustration.
