Reporters, sit up and take notice... 
This is how to write a story.

A keen grasp of detail, a sensitivity to the subjects. The writer does not call attention to himself. He becomes a medium for the marines to tell their stories.

It's obvious he's developed a rapport with these men, and lets it come through.

Best of all, there's no stupidy masquerading as "insight." Imagine the New York Times showing such self-mastery and restraint.

Outstanding stuff. We need more writers like this guy.

His name is Scott Peterson.
