Posting date: 7/24/08
A few weeks back, frequent Sandbox contributor LT G was ordered to stop posting on his milblog Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal, as his final post there explains. More detail is provided by this story, which appeared today in the Style section of the Washington Post.
At the time he was shut down it seemed prudent not to draw more attention to LT G's situation, in the hope that he would be allowed to resume posting. That has not yet happened, and City Girl, to whom he recently became engaged, has taken charge of the site, providing updates on The Gravediggers as they begin the second half of their deployment. Among her first posts was one indicating that, were he still online, LT G would now be using the nom de blog CPT G.
So here's a Sandbox salute, thank you, and congratulations to an excellent and much-appreciated writer and his beloved. We wish you many happy years and many good words ahead.
