Quick update from Yon

Michael Yon, who I mentioned in an earlier post regarding his ride-along on a spectacular weapons-cache discovery, posted this quick note today:

::::::::Special Note: American experts who examined the 26 Surface to Air Missiles captured in "The Devil's Foyer," say 23 of those missiles could have been used to attack aircraft.::::::::

Emphasis mine. I don't think I need to go into extraordinary detail about what happens when these things get used. Our troops over there are doing a tremendous job under exceedling difficult circumstances to find and secure these weapons to protect both the Coalition troops and the Iraqi populace. What they're doing matters, and it matters a great deal. Good job, guys.
