CHESTER HAS MOVED!: More from former British Para . . .

More from former British Para . . .

The Brit referenced yesterday has his own blog, Die Jakkalsgat, and has posted an Order of Battle update. Good overview. I take issue with the 24th MEU's 1/2 in blocking position east of Euphrates. Makes more sense that the battlespace east of the Euphrates and outside the city is under MEF control -- and this doesn't jive with the 24th MEU reporting to the MNB SC. Also, does anyone have imagery or a map of Latifiyah? It is not on my National Geographic map. All of the Globalsecurity imagery from Latifiyah is really of Al-Qaqaa and does not shows the surroundings.
