And a few more links worth following . . .

Two great military blogs:

Doc In The Box is a currently deployed navy corpsman (although it looks like he'll be back soon.) Its a great blog with a nice mix of personal stories, analysis and links. His description of the paperwork minutia and briefing merry-go-round before coming home brought back unfond memories. Check it out.

This is Your War isn't really a blog at all. It's a war diary, and it's personal, intense and compelling. The author is a National Guardsman in an infantry unit in the sandbox (Go Guard!) Whether he's taking you along on a patrol, describing his Sergeant Major's insanity, or describing the activation and train-up before the war, it's terrific stuff.

And one non-military:
The Special Constable is another British law enforcement blog, this one from a part-time volunteer copper. One thing I learned about the British years ago when we were crosstraining with the SAS - they tend to do things with a little bit more flair and style than we do, and a wry, understated humor seems to be built into their institutions.
