This is but a mere sampler of the expressive abilities of those who are serving and have served in the US Armed Forces. For a much larger slice, click on the MilBlogs link. 109 members and going strong!
At Going Down Range, B. has some perspective on the problem of Afghanistan’s most profitable crop.
Blackfive posts a letter to actor Harrison Ford from Amy K., a Marine wife whose husband is presently in Iraq. Mr. Ford is slated to portray Marine General Jim Mattis in a movie about the Battle of Fallujah. In light of Mr. Ford’s previously published views on the Iraq War, Mrs. K. has a question for Mr. Ford. As do many others, undoubtedly.
David Green gets poked before going to Iraq. (Relax, it is a technical term among those of us who give shots for a living.) :-)
Remember Pablo Paredes? You know, the sailor who refused to board ship before his craft sailed to the Arabian Gulf? Well, he’s finally done the right thing: present himself to face the consequences of his actions. Additional in the post, Smash shows his Commander side!
Walt at Truth, Lies and Common Sense points out that the Brits aren’t taking Christmas bashing lying down either.
If you're old enough to die for your country, you're old enough to have a Bud.
Froggy may be a tough guy, but Superman would think twice about having to confront the raging nutcase in his own office. I suggest referring her to a doctor who prescribes HRT. Or valium. Wait! Maybe you should take that last one, Matt. ;-)
A One-Winger Pinger, Ramrod, back in The World, has some interesting musings on his Iraq deployment, among several other items.
And Mrs.Greyhawk gives a review of a USO tour in Germany. (Mr. Greyhawk is in Iraq.)
Merry Christmas, Happy Hannukah, etc. to all of you, whether you’re at home or in the hot places. (That would be Iraq and Afghanistan, not the Hot Place.) Much Love.
