VFF Back to Iraq

For those that don't know, Vets For Freedom sent eight US Iraqi War Veterans back to their "old stomping grounds" during their tours in Iraq. They have been studying, learning, observing, seeing the changes first hand. Take the time to read some on the ground accounts you will find no where else.

I've highlighted Pete Hegseth's articles here for easy reading since he's the most we're familiar with in the group. My personal favorite so far is Enemies Become Allies piece. I don't think any article out there today can better describe the full circle changes on the ground in Iraq. A close second is Revelations at the Al-Rasheed as Baghdad is of much interest to me.

Track Pete Hegseth's articles here......
