Mike Yon At The Front

Mike sends this via email:

Just got from last night's mission. 7 EKIA, no friendly casualties (to my knowledge). Taliban were killed by airstrikes and Apaches. Lots of 30mm but my group was not involved other than listening to the bombs detonate and the helicopters pounding away.

His latest dispatch can be found here.

Riflemen Jamie Massey and Jordan Farrer checked their weapons and zonked out. Everyone was wet from the canal crossings and sweat, and so the morning was chilly. Photo by Mike Yon
