About Michael

At age 19, Michael Yon became the youngest person ever to successfully complete Green Beret training.

Combining his skills as a writer and a photographer as well as the encouragement of fellow veterans, Michael first traveled to Iraq in December of 2004. That began a nearly 20 year journey traveling the globe to report on world events firsthand. He has traveled to more than 80 countries including China, India, Bhutan and Vietnam.
