Message from Michael Yon: British Combat Forces Strike Hard at Militias

Posted by thebosun on April 12, 2007

I would like to pass on this email from Michael Yon.  God willing he is still reporting from Iraq.  Michael is currently in Basra with the Brits.

R/ Bosun

Greetings (from Michael Yon):

I am in Basra, with our British Coalition partners, who this week launched a clever operation that lured enemy fighters into combat, a decision that proved fatal for more than two dozen of militia members and terrorists. Please click the link to read about Operation Arezzo.

New readers will find the dispatch Tabula Rasa gives context to my work from Iraq.

Another dispatch, with more than 100 photos of the 1-4 Cav at work in Baghdad, is nearly ready. What an excellent bunch of soldiers! I’ll send out an announcement when “Desires of the Human Heart” is published and folks at home can see and read about things rarely reported.

I am energized by this embed with British soldiers, which has me in the thick of things with their soldiers who are engaged with the enemy. I broke yet another lens in combat with the British on Tuesday.

Before it got smashed, the lens was taking great photos, some of which you’ll see in the latest dispatch, and others will be published in the coming days.

This site is wholly contingent on reader support, for which I’m truly grateful. In addition to keeping me in camera lenses, reader support is the best indication I have of how important it is for me to continue this work.

Respectfully,

Michael (Yon)
