Ted Kemp - 'The Ragged Edge' on Iraq War

US Marine Michael Zacchea arrived in Iraq eager to train Iraqi troops. What he found was a lack of materiel, language difficulties, cultural misunderstandings, and ragged men. How he immersed himself in his troops' Iraqi culture to put together the Fifth Battalion that would fight at Fallujah is both an inspiring account and a cautionary tale, as detailed by author Ted Kemp.  As more combat takes the form of training foreign troops to fight insurgents, how do we promote brotherhood and cooperation?  Join us for an enlightening look into today's military on Friday, April 28, at 7 pm when Ted Kemp shares Zacchea's story in The Ragged Edge: A US Marine's Account of Leading the Iraqi Army Fifth Battalion
