The Sandbox

GWOT hot wash, straight from the wire

Welcome to The Sandbox, a forum for service members who have served or are currently serving in Iraq and Afghanistan, returned vets, spouses and caregivers. The Sandbox's focus is not on policy and partisanship (go to our Blowback page for that), but on the unclassified details of deployment -- the everyday, the extraordinary, the wonderful, the messed-up, the absurd. All correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted, lightly edited. If you know someone who is deployed who might have something to say, please tell them about us.

I was in the drive-thru at Starbucks after returning from a deployment. Ahhh, coffee smelled great. When I got up to the window the Starbucks guy said it was free! Someone the day before had left a gift card for any military person to use. It was their way of showing appreciation. That meant a lot to me, as it does when strangers walk up and say, "Thanks for serving."


Thanks for serving. Glad you made it home safe.

Thanks for your service, welcome home.

That's a cool idea! Thanks for serving, and welcome home!
