Another report from Fallujah - This one from Jan 30th, 2005 - Election Day
I picked up on LtCol Bellon's emails to his Dad when they had been posted on Black Five, and here's another one. I'm actually surprised I found it before it was linked on several other sites, such as Black Five. Dave Bellon's Battalion of Marines fought in Fallujah. this email talks about how his Marines took the city, then helped the rightful residents come home. On the day of the election, these Marines saw freedom in action. I did note, that after the Iraqi National Guardsmen voted, the first Fallujah resident he saw walking into the polls to exercise her new opportunity was a woman. Let's pray the women of Iraq will gain their independence as well.
