Late Monday evening, September 25, 2006, I received the following e-mail from Michael Fumento:
I head out Tuesday, should be in the IZ by Saturday and probably will send out my first blog then. Then will catch first helo to Ramadi. Hooah!
Senior Fellow, Hudson Institute
Michael and I then exchanged some more pleasant e-mail, and I told him to say hello from a Marine father to the young warriors he meets in the al Anbar Province.
I have said Michael Fumento, in my opinion, is the closest thing we have to a contemporary version of Ernie Pyle. Check out his blog from the al Anbar Province (or if you don’t, rest assured that I will remind you in my posts).
God bless Michael, the Marines, the Soldiers and all of our other boys under arms in al Anbar and in Iraq generally. You fight. We pray for your safety and victory. All I can do is blog and pray, so that’s what I do.
