Cool milblog: Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal

Kaboom: A Soldier's War Journal belongs to a Cav Scout LT now serving as a PL in Iraq.

Via Intel Dump.

Update: Awesome blog, both in terms of generational flair and insight.

Update2: Slate's milblogs page.

Update3: LT G was ordered to shut down his blog; however, his old posts have been archived here. His fiancee, CityGirl, has taken over his former blog.

Update4: LT G was promoted to Captain. From his mother, in comments to CityGirl, LT G's fiancee: "You're wonderful! And, you're a much better writer than you give yourself credit for! You know that all of my best hopes and prayers are with you, the Gravediggers and Capt. G, formerly known as Lt. G. In the meantime, bless your Grandmother, as stemware selection can be a great distraction. After all, a great woman once said, "My dear, there is something you must always remember. Your bosom can be fake. Your smile can be fake and your hair color can be fake. But your pearls and your silver must always be real." Tee Hee! (though one of the things we all love most about you is your authenticity!)

Love, Capt. G's Mom"

Update5: I already knew LT, now CPT, G's real-life identity because it was stated in several obscure on-line outlets. Now, CPT Matt Gallagher has been fully 'outed' in this Washington Post piece about him. Credit to Blackfive.
