Been saving links from blog posts and stories to pass on since May, and yikes! suddenly it’s June..so here, for you, are some links I’m hopeful you’ll find interesting..
Off the Base posted early in May A ‘Former’ Wounded Warrior and Silver Star Banner Day
I’ve been around the ‘milblogging’ world as a reader since back in ’05..I think we ‘old-timers’,lol, tend to forget that folks who are just starting to read milblogs missed those early bloggers who blazed a path. One of them was Colby Buzzell and The Sandbox reposted his essay My Father’s War Pictures, and Mine
I believe it was at CJ Chivers The Gun (another blog worth following) that I came across the news that Bowe Bergdahl’s parents had set up a website Bring Bowe Home I cannot imagine what his parents must be going through, our thoughts and prayers continue for them and their son.
Letters of Note is a fascinating website and they recently featured a letter written by 19 year old Ernest Hemingway, after he was injured serving as an ambulance driver in World War One The real heroes are the parents
A blogger posts a link to a collection of British WW II newsreel clips Here
and lastly, Loving a Soldier posts Memorial Day for a Soldier’s Son
