Anyway, enough of that. One of the very best new milbloggers has been nominated for the 2008 Weblog Awards! I'm posting this in hopes that you will check out his blog and vote for him -- he's an excellent writer and he surely deserves this award! (I do have to warn you, his blog is DEFINITELY "R" rated in content at times. Or more like NC-17, perhaps - or NC-17 +++? He is an infantryman, after all, lol! Not for the faint of heart, howzat?). His blog is raw and real and gives a great glimpse into life in the Sandbox for a Soldier... a Jewish soldier, at that -- think about it. A Jewish soldier, serving in the Middle East. He's in double danger there -- not only because he's "there" in the first place, but because the bad guys over there hate all Jews with a passion. An American and a Jew - double target if it were known to the enemy (hence his absolute strict anonymity, of course!). BT's post about being the only one celebrating Hanukkah, out in the freezing cold because he wasn't allowed to light a candle inside a building, was heartbreaking.
Anyway, if you haven't already discovered Big Tobacco, check him out! And then VOTE for him in the 2008 Weblog Awards!
