Totten: The bravery of Iraqis

Short but superb. No sugar coating, either. Tales of valor typically don’t begin with recitations of the darker chapters of the units from which they emerge but Totten’s giving you the full kaleidoscope here. It’s because you don’t know who the men were and what might have driven them that makes it compelling. A complicated place.

Not the first time we’ve heard stories like this, either. Make sure to click these three links and read the captions. Totten gave you the names, the AP gives you the faces.
