Michael Yon’s photograph
Has been honored as one of 10 finalists for photo of the year.
And vote for this great picture which Michael describes so well today:
It was an instant of clarity in a blur of chaos that, for many of us, frames and defines the nature of this war. Any US soldier who has ever served in combat can probably give countless examples of moments like this. I just happened to be on the scene that day when a terrorist who had been trailing a Deuce Four patrol in a car packed with explosives waited until a crowd of children had gathered around the soldiers and selected that moment to drive into the crowd and detonate. Although little remained of him to be shown in this frame, the image somehow still reveals the true nature of our enemy in this war.
So far the vote is 56% for Michael’s picture, I know we can bring that up.
