Unsung Heroes

The heroes of the war in Iraq are the men and women fighting and winning it and the embeds reporting the truth.

Michael Yon writes has embedded with a Kiowa Warrior helicopter squadron that’s winning the brutal battle with al Qaeda in the city of Mosul.

The Kiowa has been around for almost 40 years, and the Warrior is the latest version. It’s tiny, with an empty weight of 3,200 lb, same as a mid-sized sedan, and a top speed of 138 mph.

Here’s Yon’s beautifully written story.
