Milblogs Go Silent

December 15th, 2009 · 15 Comments

Army Master Sgt. C. J. Grisham has always led from the front, from combat that earned him the Bronze Star with V device, to doing right by the men he led. His honesty won him readership and respect, from the White House on down. Yet, when he stood up for his children in school, his command did not stand by him. You can read more at Military Times to get the full story.

Milblogs have been a vital link in getting accurate news and information about the military, and military operations, to you. Today, many milblogs are gone and others are under attack from within and without. Today, you have the chance to imagine a world without milblogs, and to do something about it. Make your voice heard by writing your congressional representatives and others, and by making donations as you see fit.

The battle for freedom of speech and the marketplace of ideas is fought on many fronts and in many ways. Without your help, the battle may well be lost.

    Meanwhile back in his palace, surrounded by his army in Pyongyang, we find Norf Korea’s Great Reader, KIM Jong IL surfing the internet’s whirl-why-web and checking up on US milblogs….

    KIM- What?! What in the name of Sam’s Club (Sam Hill) is this? U.S. Milbroggs Silent Today? General Wang! Front and spinster, right now !!!

    WANG- Here, Great Reader! Front and center, Sir!

    KIM- What’s diss?! (points at computer screen)

    WANG- Hmmm…it says,
    “Army Master Sgt. C. J. Grisham has always led from the front, from combat that earned him the Bronze Star with V device, to doing right by the men he led. His honesty won him readership and respect, from the White House on down. Yet, when he stood up for his children in school, his command did not stand by him.”

    KIM- And you thought stuff was only all FUBAR’d in “The Glorious Norf Korean People’s Army”…didn’t you, General Wang?

    WANG- Well Sir, I must say it does sound like something our North Korean Army officers would do to one of our own….not like the Americans I’ve come across. Americans, who cherish their freedoms, Sir.

    KIM- Wonder what that freedom stuff is? Oh well, I guess the Americans like my weedership (leadership) style…huh, General Wang?! I’m be one hell of a role model!!!

    WANG- Sadly so, Sir….sadly so.

    KIM- What was that, General Wang?

    WANG- Good to go, Sir! I said…good to go.

    KIM- That’s what I’m thoughts you said.

    Fin.

    I am the wife of a Viet Nam vet that retired military 15yrs. ago, approx. I am the mom-in-law of a Marine & a soldier at this time.

    I financially support by humble monthly donation, a 501c that Col. Antonio Monaco founded a couple of years ago.

    It’s offering is receiving Amazing reviews in healing PTSD, anger, and other emotional issues. This is so much so that the 82nd. Airborne reportedly has now requested and been sent 6,000 copies of the Multimedia CD called “Coping Strategies.” All at not one penny’s cost to anyone.

    Please read Col. Monaco’s letter at patriotoutreach.org and consider downloading for free and/or phoning and requesting your own gift of “Coping Strategies.” I don’t think I am exaggerating to call this CD a Christmas Miracle. People are being confidentially helped and healed, regaining their own self-control and peace of mind. The Airborne is not the only military command that has ordered by the thousands. THIS is the miracle.

    Merry Christmas and God bless each of you and please, after reading the colonel’s message if you see the value many others of us do in this, please help us get the word out about it.

    Sincerely,
    Karen T
