List of Embedded Journalists and Marine Units

We're developing a list of embedded reporters and what units they are deployed with as well as a link to any online news from those reporters. Please help me to put this together by emailing Embedded@MarineParents.com. Please include the reporters name, who they work for, and the name of the Marine Battalion/Unit that they are embedded with. Include a web address if you know it. Thanks for your help!

There are two lists on this page; the first list is ordered by the Marine Corps Unit, and the second list is random as the information has come in. The second list includes some links. I am working on organizing and cleaning up this page now.
