The Inspiration To Countless Bloggers
I honestly knew very little about Blogs until June of this year, when I came upon what would later be called the most famous of the Iraq War blogs, My War. I was preparing to deploy to Iraq myself, and after reading this guy's posts I quickly looked into setting up my own blog so I could share the stories of my upcoming deployment with my family and friends.
I mention this because this guy took more flack for writing what he did, yet he was and still is the best in the business even though he can no longer post to his site. If you want to read the best account of combat and military life in Iraq, please click on this link and scroll to the post at the bottom called"Men In Black." Trust me, once you start reading you won't stop.
Like I said, this guy took a lot of flack for what he wrote, thanks in part to all of the news stories written about his blog. I hope he can write a book on his experiences some day. I would bet the offers are already on his doorstep. I'm sure he's smart enough to take the highest bidder, because his story is worth every penny.
