Chicken and Parakeet Feathers

Michael Yon just posted his latest in his series with Command Sergeant Major Mellinger, the senior enlisted man on the ground in Iraq.

This is by far one of my favorite posts from Yon, complete with awesome pictures,  an assertive and smart Lieutenant Colonel and a not-so-smart, sniper-attracting, Iraqi Rambo-parakeet.  You should always try to keep the Rambo-parakeets away from your fighting position...

Update:  Via Michelle Malkin - Attention NEW YORK TIMES:  Hire Michael Yon.  Give him one meeellion dollars to write for your fading paper...
