Jonathan just called....if you guys read the article in the other post, you know what his unit did last night.

He is PUMPED!!!
The city normally contains about 450k people....as of right now, they're down to about 15k.

He had a mortar land about 15 meters from him, but other than that he has not been shot at or targeted.

His unit has commandeered an apartment building in Al-Najaf and he is getting ready to sleep in a REAL BED tonite before moving out in the morning...he got a real shower too....
OH MY GOSH....I AM SO HAPPY!!!!!!
GOD BLESS OUR TROOPS----GOD BLESS AMERICA----GOD BLESS THE 101st.


He said the fight lasted about 6 hours total....no casualties!!! It was fierce at times, but he said..."Thank God for the 3rd ID tanks and the Air Force....we were calling in airstrikes and they flew in rocking and rolling....looked like the 4th of July..."

PS....his mom asked him about the Iraqi's faking their surrenders....he said, "..Don't worry mom, the Rules of Engagement have changed for us....

I like that last part. Whatever those rules are now should have been the rules from day 1.

My brother, your son has reached a level of manhood most men will never attain. It's like I said last night, "To those of us who have served. . .freedom has a flavor the protected will never know !". And for those warriors who have been tested in battle the taste is ever the sweeter. I congradulate you and his mom for bringing up a fine American Warrior. I salute you and your family. You guys are what being American is all about. . .he walks in the shadow of God and I am truly humbled in the presense of true greatness. Hooo-ya trooper. . .F-the-FN-FERS. . .on to Bagdad and my God have mercy on their souls !

Bauer. . .Out !

Bob sounds like my old CSM - that boy never needed a radio, couple of tin cans and some line and he had commo. You could hear him a country mile.

Good AAR Ken. HOOAH
