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....
