Captain Thomas Daly

Captain Thomas Daly joined the Marines following his graduation from the University of Rochester in the spring of 2004. During his career as an artillery officer he held a multitude of billets, ranging from Forward Observer to Intelligence Cell Leader.

His unique perception of the battlefield has been shaped while operating with units of the United States Army, Navy SEALs, ANGLICO (Air, Naval Gunfire Liaison Company), Iraqi Army and Police Units, and anti-Al Qaeda guerrillas. This diverse interaction with multiple styles of warfare, coupled with the dramatic effect it had on the city of Ramadi, has provided the author with an unusual view of Iraq; a viewpoint of success against the modern insurgent.
