The MilBlog of the week here at Wizbang is “USMC”, from Live In Iraq. There’s a bit of irony in this choice, as USMC tends to devote nearly his entire blog to singling out and praising others — a father and son, both Marines, both stationed in Iraq; a sailor who left her “religious program” specialty and spent time working with Marines on guard duty, to search female potential bombers at checkpoints; even a tale of a Marine whose life was saved by a genuine dogface.
I’ve always been a big believer in the importance of the message over the messenger, and apparently USMC agrees with me — I don’t think he’s ever talked much about himself. But every now and then the work of the messenger needs to be praised for a job well done.
So, if you have a moment or two today, head on over to USMC’s page and give him a few kind words. We owe him and his brethren far more, but it’s a good start.
