Walking the line, part 3

This time, in Al Anbar province, hotbed of Sunni resistence, with Army veteran and freelance journalist Michael Yon and his photos:

"…the first thing that Marine Sergeant Major O’Connell said about the Minnesota National Guard was something to the effect that this was the best bunch he’d ever seen. I had to clear my ears and ask him to repeat that. I seemed to have had an auditory hallucination, because high praise coming from a Marine Sergeant Major in Anbar province, who knows what competent troops are, just didn’t seem right when it was heaped on the Army."

Rest is here
