UPDATE: Michael Yon was my guest on the program today, via sat phone from Mosul. The transcript will be up later at Radioblogger.com.
To all of those who have benefitted from Michale Yon’s reporting over the past few months, and especially yesterday’s “Gate of Fire,” a friend of Yon wrote to tell me that the night vision equipment Yon needs runs more than $11,000. That’s a lot of tip jar work, but I am hoping that we can rally the blogosphere and Yon’s readers to raise that and more this weekend.
Or you can send a check to: Michael Yon P.O. Box 416, Westport Pt, MA 02791
No free rides. Even if its only a buck, help keep Yon in the field (and fully equipped.)
