ABSTRACT
Michael Kelly, who edited "The New Republic" from 1996 to 1997, died while traveling as an embedded reporter with the Army's 3rd Infantry Division in Iraq. Michael's association with the magazine began when he covered the first Gulf war, for which he won a National Magazine Award. It was through his courageous, eloquent reporting that this magazine came to understand the importance, for the United States and the world, of a free Iraq at peace with its neighbors. In tribute, this article reprints excerpts from his March 18, 1991, dispatch from that war, "Kiss of Victory."
