To those Who Serve, We Salute You

For over 200 years, they have kept us free. Image created by Darleen Click

A while back, the gals of The Cotillion decided that we would honor the Milbloggers for the 4th of July. We've randomly chosen milbloggers to read/link/correspond with and today, on each of our blogs and the links aggregated at The Cotillion, we are showcasing them.

Please DO check out the Cotillion link and thank Jody and Tammy (with special thanks to William Teach) for a spectacular post.

Mustang 23 is the proud writer of Assumption of Command. He is currently in Iraq. Mustang 23 told me he blogs for fun, to communicate with his family, and to counter the negativity that is the 24/7 mission of the MSM. I found it difficult to pick just one entry to showcase because so many of his entries are entertaining as well as informative. He helped(!) me out by sending me a list of several to choose from. Heh.

This post is really an index to the question/answer session he had with a 7th grade Social Studies class. Many of the questions are predictable but Mustang deals with them in both a straight forward and humorous manner. Good show, Mustang. I predict you're gonna be a great dad someday!

Mustang 23 also impressed me with his range of writing, from lighthearted to poignant.

Watch Your Six is another milblogger (who will be deploying to Iraq soon) that impresses me with his commitments - to himself, his family and his country. His post on The CinC's speech demonstrates an admirable economy of words in telling you clearly what he thinks. Six also is clear on what he thinks about the Army's requirement that warzone milbloggers register. I am in agreement with Six.

Shipshape and bristol fashion is the milblog of The Yankee Sailor. Crisp commentary with daily offerings of newslinks of interest makes for a great daily read. In this post Yankee Sailor makes efficient short work of the fawning media and asks an intelligent (although, for now, rhetorical) question.

Gentlemen, I have enjoyed discovering your milblogs and I know I'm going to be visiting often. Please know, too, that my admiration and gratitude for your choice to serve this country knows no bounds.

hey darleen,

Just wanted to drop by and tell you that no matter how hard you try, the in crowd at LGF will always consider you beneath them because of your obvious ignorance and lack of schooling and for the fact that you are nonchosen goyim.

Keep kissin' up babe, it'll get you NOWHERE.

Not only does LGF greatly appreciate darleen, we also know that hujambo was severely spoken to as a child. Unfortunately, it didn't help. (Where are the bullies when you need them?).

Keep up the good work darleen!

anyone can assume a name and namejack...

I could care less about the "in crowd" at lgf and what any of you mouth-breathers think...

just letting you know that someone has it out for you, apparently, and it ain't me.

Yeah hujambo, you got namejacked. Sorry about that bud.

Made dar-leeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen look silly though.


[Darleen sez: That's right arik, you put up a vaguely anti-Semitic post and it's ME that looks silly.]
