The Sole Survivor - Navy SEAL Story

Last Updated Jun 12, 2007 5:08 PM EDT

The Washington Post has an amazing interview / account of a Navy SEAL who was ambushed in Afghanistan by Taliban fighters a couple years ago. He was the only member of his team to survive. It's a moving story and well worth a quiet read.

As we go about our daily, menial lives, a parallel world of war plays host to tragedy and heroism, betrayal and loyalty. We're indebted to the journalists who give us the occasional peek.
