Michael Yon's Fight for What is Right

I have been a fan of the work of Michael Yon since before he was "world famous." In the old days, he was just the hero of a lot of milbloggers. Now he writes and the world listens.

I'm sure you will recognize the picture that shook our hearts and souls when you click the link in a minute... but that Michael Yon picture -- which is copyrighted -- has been purloined by an indecent magazine to grace the cover of a tabloid whose sole intent is to disgust and enrage its readers. They have used the photo on its cover without the permission of Michael Yon (who would not have granted such a use anyway). This magazine - aptly named "Shock" has refused to address the issue and has refused to pull its magazine from the shelves.
There is a movement afoot to put pressure on the publishers and the distributors of the magazine.
You can help. You can make a difference. Takes just a minute to send emails to the parties involved -- the links are conveniently provided.
None of us would sit still if someone had stolen our personal property and blatantly used it in a public fashion to make a profit from it... So let's do what's right. Read more HERE. Help HERE.
