It started with listening to Hugh Hewitt on the radio. Hewitt (BIG THANKS) took me to blogs, mil-blogs and BLACKFIVE where I learned about the need for warm kid's clothing in Afghanistan, Patriot Guard Riders, Soldier's Angels, Vets for Freedom and a whole slew of great insights/war news (like from the great Michael Yon and Patti Patton-Badder of Soldiers Angels!) I was not getting via the TV. Matt...who's "baby" is and "he is" Black Five, got me doing things, instead of just being concerned. I was now taking action.. Through B5 I met (via comments and a few e-mails) guys like Uncle Jimbo (who Great Reader made Raff, and then gave me MUCHO good publicity!), Laughing Wolf, Subsunk and others. I was so hooked! Laughing Wolf , a jewel-in-the-rough media embed, who helped bring a deceased hero's dog home from Iraq to the hero's Gold Star Mom. B5's Mr Wolf of Gryphon Airlines had transport in the mid-east for LW and the pup! Thanks to Laughing Wolf, I met a guy I've been compared to but fall far below, Parkway Rest Stop's own Jimbo! Such channeling of Hillary and Nancy Pelosi that will have you howling with laughs or never returning again! You will find good people there. It was there (PRS) where I met a commenter/blogger named Erica. It was her who pushed me into this crap with her encouragement and a sense of humor that has to be as warped as mine. Thank you Erica, and thanks to all of you who stop by. Thank you all!
