Over the weekend, ISIS took over Ramadi, Iraq, adding a third provincial capital to their Islamic terror-state and bringing them within only 60 miles of Baghdad.
As Reported By Justen Charters For IJL Review:
During Operation Iraqi Freedom, U.S. military personnel served and died in Ramadi, which was one of the most dangerous cities in Iraq. Navy SEAL Sniper Mark Matzeldelaflor, who served in the city, described the experience:
