Jamie Tarabay on the frontline
What was it like being stationed in these high-conflict areas?
Itâ€™s hairy. You do sort of have to remind yourself to a certain degree of the danger. You catch yourself â€” â€œI canâ€™t believe I just did that.â€ You always have to be aware. How do you focus on reporting despite all thatâ€™s going on around you? That was easy. There never seemed to be a lack of work. You never forgot why you were there.
You were arrested?
One too many times. Iâ€™ve been beaten up, shot at, things blowing up all around me. Being arrested is probably the most benign thing that happened. link
