Blogging From a War Zone

The special feature in The World Almanac 2007, “Blogs From Soldiers and Their Families: Voices of Service to America,” featured several bloggers. Of them, Arnold Strong is currently serving in Afghanistan and “Buck Sargent” is still serving as a NCO in Baghdad.

If you’d like to read other blogs by military servicepersons and their families, J.P. Borda's milblogging.com is a great place to start. By using the “advanced search” function, you can browse blogs by gender, military branch and relationship to the service (mother, father, soldier), and country of origin.

If you are interested in reading civilian perspectives from within Iraq, check out Iraq Blog Count, which features blogs of Iraqis within Iraq as well as abroad, as well as many other blogs on the subject of Iraq. One of particular interest is the blog of Fatima, an American-born Iraqi, who posts at Thoughts from Baghdad about her experience returning to her home country.

Warning: As personal journals, language in these weblogs can be rough and some pictures may be inappropriate for children.
