Army Times Publishes a milblog list 
Naw. Countercolumn didn't make the cut. I guess I'm too mean to their advertisers. But Countercolumn isn't really a pure milblog any more anyway.

But some extraordinarily good blogs did. Check it out.

I don't think "My War" jump-started the blogging revolution, or even war-blogging. But he was easily the best pure action writer among us. Neil Prakash is terrific, too, but My War just had the perfect counterculture, gonzo touch - an immediacy of style that belies something beyond mere intelligence and approaches genius. Lots of bloggers have intelligence. But My War had that little something extra that put him over the top.

Glad to see him get some press. Neil, too, and all the others.

I also want to mention Bob Zangas, who was killed in Iraq last March. The link is to his final post, and a photograph.

His final words to us:

"Hang on to your dreams."

Check out this new one: A Day in Iraq. The author is rather prolix, but given the detail he provides, that's all good. A new potential star, IMO.
Hey, excellent website. A great Iraq resource is Deaths in Iraq. It breaks all of the casualties down by age, race, branch of the military, country, etc.
