Why are milblogs falling silent today?

cj army times




"During the invasion of Iraq, Grisham took down a squad of Iraqis when his counterintelligence detachment got pinned down in an ambush. He earned the Bronze Star with "V" after rushing through the gunfire by himself with just a 9mm pistol and a hand grenade."
-Mudville Gazette (read all of it)




I'm sorry to say that this will not be the post I want to write, but the one that I allude to. What do I mean by this? Well, I've been remiss in following the plight of CJ, of A Soldier's Perspective, due to my own personal activities (which has seen me engaged on life support blogging, in general). But his is a story that I feel is important to cover, because it not only affects him (one of the finest patriots this country has, and everything you'd want in an American soldier), but affects everyone.

I'm sure some or most readers of FA are already familiar with CJ and what's going on. But for those who don't, I will link you to others who have done a fine job of covering this (Bookworm does a fine job of summarizing in a nutshell, here):

When we can no longer attract warriors to the cause, we are simply doomed.

That is the end of this country.
