Kelly Kennedy “They Fought for Each Other”
May 9th, 2011
When she went to Baghdad in 2007 Kelly Kennedy had something most other embedded journalists don’t have — combat experience. She’s a veteran of Desert Storm and Mogadishu, and joined Charlie Company, 1/26th Infantry, to cover it for Army Times.

Kennedy tells their stories in her book “They Fought For Each Other.”
