Assigned Viewing: Michael Yon & Air Force Pararescue
(FROM: U.S. Air Force AIM Points)
A week ago today, I directed you to a photo essay featuring an intimate look at the first two years of the enlisted life of Ian Fisher, a selfless American soldier. Today, I’d like to point you in the direction of a photo essay by journalist Michael Yon, who had the opportunity to tag along with Air Force Pararescue as they saved lives in Afghanistan.
God bless these kids. Not a day goes by when I don’t pray for them, and for their families back home. Meanwhile, in Washington, our president still hasn’t made a decision about augmenting troop levels more than fifty days after Gen. Stanley McChrystal asked for reinforcements — but that’s another matter, for another time and place.
Anyway, Yon’s photos are stunning, and his prose is well-written and informative. Please take a look.
