From American Digest:
IN OVER TWO YEARS, I HAVE NOT ASKED FOR ANYTHING FROM MY READERS. That changes today. Today I want you to do something right now.

What I would ask you to do today is to make as significant a contribution as you can to Michael Yon who has, since the start of 2005, been writing what has become a high-water mark in reporting from the front lines of Iraq. My respect for his integrity, his writing and his courage is, I have reason to believe, shared by many of our troops on the ground in Iraq.

There's been a lot of talk about how important it is to have independent voices telling us about the situation in Iraq. Well, to get that you have to pay for it. It's time we all did. Michael Yon has a Support button on his site. Please visit it and give as significant a sum as you can.
