Bravo Company of the 1/23

The CS Monitor has a very, VERY good article up about Bravo Company of the 1st Battalion of the 23rd Marine Regiment. They're a company of reservists out of Lousiana and Texas. For those of you who are regular readers of Blackfive, you may recognize a member of Bravo Company, Sgt. Herbert B. Hancock. Anyway, once you get past the standard "what are reservists doing fighting in Iraq/the military is overstressed" opening, its a well-written peek into the life of Marines in combat.

Check it out.
