Two great MilBlogs (XBradTC)

How many of you remember the fantastic Navy blogger Neptunus Lex? Lex was a prolific, and terrific, writer. After his death in 2012, it turned out, the family didn't have his passwords to his account, and so eventually his blog simply went away. Fortunately, one of his readers had saved a fair portion of his posts. And with the permission of his family, one of my coauthors is posting his work on one of my sideblogs. No one is making any money off this. It's simply there to get his works back out in the public sphere. If you were a fan of Lex, you'll love reading the early stuff again. If you never heard of Lex, you're definitely going to want to read his stuff. Even if you're not into MilBlogs, I highly encourage you to read him. He wrote as a human first, and a milblogger second.

Seriously, four years after his death and his community is still growing. What's that tell you about him as a man and a writer?

Next up, TSO at the popular This Ain't Hell wanted to do something special for the Caisson Platoon of The Old Guard at Arlington National Cemetery. The Tomb Guards get all the media attention. But the horse soldiers of the Caisson Platoon do their job day in and day out laying to rest America's finest.

Take a look at some of the supporters of the effort, to include Medal of Honor recipients Sal Giunta, Kyle White and Ryan Pitts.

In less than 24 hours, the TAH community raised more than $3000 to provide a special challenge coin for the platoon and future members.

I was going to ask you to support this effort, but they've already exceeded their goal. But do go and learn a bit about the Caisson Platoon.

Here's a good video on them

And finally, if any of you care, is back up. We'll eventually get the archives back up and running as well.
