    There has not been any journalist for any paper who has given us the reports from where the action is as those of Michael Yon. There have not been any of the media, either newspaper or TV or radio, where we could find anything close to Yon's accuracy, and in most cases just the opposite, nothing but criticism or downright lies. Strange how many of those reporters have such an "holier than thou" in attitude, but are outright liars in fact.

    If anyone should receive some sort of military recognition for his devotion to our men in Iraq and Afghanistan, it is Yon. Not only our to men, but also our allies in the mid-east, whether European or mid-eastern. I hope that at some point in time this happens. He sets the standard, one that should guide future journalists with our forces, wherever they are required to go.

    For those of us who read his columns but do not comment, perhaps I can speak for them by saying, "Thank you." Or, encourage them to express their thanks here on this page for our military, and for Yon, and wish them all a Happy Thanksgiving.

    Those who serve will find that their comrades are for a lifetime, for even those who were in different outfits, when they meet, even fifty years later, are comrades who share a kinship that never dies, believe me.
