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'd never in a million years have expected to be posting a Katy Perry video, but my colleagues at the Marine Corps' Los Angeles office made this happen, along with the outstanding Marines at Camp Pendleton who put up with days of a different kind of shooting, and gave Miss Perry a crash course in Devil Dog fun. Who needs a splashy new campaign when we've got this?


Wow. Awesome video. Talk about strong women!

Thanks, Debbie - they are indeed strong. The Marine who Katy Perry is throwing to the ground is a black belt in the Marine Corps Martial Arts Program...I crossed paths with her in Afghanistan. They are warriors, and it's not hard to see why the pop star chose to emulate them!
