The Seattle Times’ Hal Bernton has two good dispatches from Afghanistan, where he’s embedded with Fort Lewis’ 5th Brigade, 2nd Infantry Division while on assignment for McClatchy Newspapers. He writes about the grueling pace of counterinsurgency in the Arghandab Valley and a slice-of-life blog post about a mutton feast.
