The Sandbox, soldiers' stories from Iraq and Afghanistan

The soldiers' stories on this website are riveting, you won't be able to stop reading. People are posting comments for each article by the dozens and you will be tempted to also: to praise, to commiserate, to send your support to U.S. soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Here is the introduction to the Sandbox:

"Welcome to The Sandbox, our command-wide milblog, featuring comments, anecdotes, and observations from service members currently deployed to Iraq and Afghanistan. This is GWOT-lit's forward position, offering those in-country a chance to share their experiences and reflections with the rest of us. 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. The Sandbox is a clean, lightly-edited debriefing environment where all correspondence is read, and as much as possible is posted. And contributors may rest assured that all content, no matter how robust, is currently secured by the First Amendment. "
