Over the last few weeks, I've been checking in on "The Sandbox." It's public blog, all written by soldiers stationed in Iraq and Afghanistan. There are all sorts of viewpoints and stories. Nothing is edited or deleted -- you get to hear from everyone. It's good to hear directly from the soldiers, without the media spin. What they write is fascinating, scary, and often heartwarming.

It was started by Gary Trudeau, who creates Doonesbury. However, it's not full of liberal bias -- it's all written by active soldiers on duty. In fact, very few of the posts mention politics at all -- most of the entries are about day-to-day life in Iraq.

If you've ever wondered "what it's really like over there," this is about as close as you can get without enlisting.

It's worth checking out. Be prepared to stay a while.

From the blog:
"The Sandbox is a clean, lightly-edited debriefing environment where all correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted."

I have family serving in Iraq right now and I can say that Nothing comes from there unedited. Even phone conversations are monitored and frequently censored. It's spooky.

Here's to hoping they all come home safely, and soon. :cheers:
