Meeting the media

One of the advantages of being the Media Embed Coordinator is meeting the media. Here

I am with ABC's Martha Raddatz at the Joint Visitors Bureau on Camp Victory in Baghdad, Iraq. She was here talking to members of the 1st CAV (among others about other things) regarding a battle fought in Sadr City in April 2004. Some of those troops are still in the unit but instead of being privates and specialists they're NCOs. She wrote a book about the battle called "The Long Road Home." According to some of the Soldiers who were there and read the book, it is accurate. I started reading a copy that was laying around the office and it disappeared. I guess I'll have to pick up copy of my own. Maybe I can get a bit part in the movie . . .
