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.

What can I say about C.J. Grisham, one of the first milbloggers? He’s been a friend to me since 2004/2005 when I blogged from Afghanistan. He has dedicated himself over the years to telling the story of the military from the soldier’s perspective, which says a lot in terms of him as a person. Many milbloggers who launch a site eventually stop writing, but C.J. has kept at it year after year after year.

He recently made the decision to shut down his popular site A Soldier’s Perspective, and all I can say is that it was disappointing to hear that news. Though I don’t know everything firsthand about the circumstances of his situation, I would vouch for my friend anytime.

If you’re not familiar with C.J.’s story, please read his recent post on YouServed. As he puts it, “I feel like I must humble myself and ask for help on my own behalf in this instance."

You can also read a recent story from Military Times here.
