Was announced in this past Sundays (October 8,2006) Doonesbury comic strip
It is a "...milblog, featuring comments, anecdotes, and observations from service members currently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan." "....offering those in-country a chance to share their experiences and reflections with the rest of us. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship" ......,"but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. .....where all correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted. And contributors may rest assured that all content, no matter how robust, is currently secured by the First Amendment." source: the sandbox
it is not the first military blog (milblog)... but it is worthy of a read! and We need a few more!
