??s rescue of at least one Marine Lieutenant Colonel Jay Kopelman from the emotional ravages of warFrom hardened Marines to war time journalists to endangered Irai citizens From Baghdad With Love tells an unforgettable true story of an unlikely band of heroes who learn unexpected lessons about life death and war from a mangy little flea ridden refuge.
