The Seattle Times’ Hal Bernton has embedded with the troops of 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division. Hal has been in Afghanistan for the past month or so on assignment for McClatchy Newspapers, and he’s done some really good work so far. The 5th Brigade has more or less been akin to a news black hole, so it’s great to see one of the best reporters in the area have a chance to embed with them.

His first dispatch from the assignment is a blog post about a patrol in the Arghandab River Valley.
