Here’s a gripping story of courage, honor, sacrifice, that you won’t see on the network news or in the main stream media. Why? Because it doesn’t fit the narrative. And yet it happened.

It’s the true story of two soldiers who saw half their squad cut down before their eyes, and yet, in spite of overwhelming 20-to-1 odds, fought on and held their ground, inflicting many casualties themselves, until their attackers abandoned the fight.

It's entitled " The Longest Morning" and appears as the cover article of this month's American Spectator. The author is Jeff Emanuel, who is embedded with the 82nd Airborne Division in Iraq. Read the whole article. Or only read half of it, if you can tear yourself away.
