I'm coming back to where I belong. My sons being in this War is the most important aspect of my life at this time and I have to write about it; I have to hear about it from others.
Hopefully what I have to say next will put to rest what bothered me the most about "milblogging." I found it entirely unreasonable and downright deceiving for some people to portray themselves as righteous, all-knowing, "better than thou," and practically heroic in blogs about WAR! There is no place in milblogging for snobbery, conceit, self-promotion or exclusion. I have been extremely disappointed with several members of the milblogging community and that is most likely why I wanted out of it.
July 1, 1996 when I said goodbye to Kris at West Point. This is a horrible photo but definitely worth it's 1,000 words. Talk about bittersweet.
