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.

The New York Times has an ongoing forum called Home Fires, which has previously posted the work of several Sandbox writers. They are now soliciting contributions for a Veterans Day feature. Although there's not much time left, I thought I'd pass along word:

Invitation to Veterans, Their Friends and Families

The editors of Home Fires are requesting the participation of readers for a post on Veterans Day, Nov. 11. If you are a veteran, or friend or relative of someone who served during wartime and would like to share a written message or recollection, or a photograph recalling a veteran or their service, you can send it to us via e-mail at Please put HOME FIRES in the subject line of your message.

For details, please read this...

Veterans! Honor your oath! Join Oath Keepers!

You won't be stuck for ideas as we help you get over the hurdle and proceed with your basement makeovers.

We're lucky to have those veterans who fought for our country during the war.

For a more difficult work out have your little one ride your back, pony style, for 8 to 12 reps.
