Battle - from an artist's perspective.

From Trying to Grok I came upon this story - written by an artist (artist!) trying to record what is going on in Iraq. It is his recollection of the recent Battle of Bacqubah.

Welcome to the Brotherhood of War, Mr. Mumford. You've got metal. And you're a pretty good artist, too!

Way to go, Dana - it's been a long time since we served together, and I see you haven't slacked off a bit.

But more importantly, perhaps - way to go Sarah... I know how tough it is to read about battles you have had loved ones in. During Tet 68 I watched the nightly news hoping that Dad would never be in the picture... and hoping to catch a glimpse of him, too.
