Now, I have to be honest and admit my ego is as big as the next Marine. It sure would be great to win again this year. However, I think the right thing to do is encourage folks to vote for someone who has not won this award previously. Last year Taco Bell over at the Sandgram did as much for me and I’m glad to pay it forward. So this year I’m pulling for Cpl Beddoe over at USMC81. Or hell, you could vote for Cpl Sanders slinging hate and discontent at Guts, Glory, and Glitter. Either way, it would be great to see a winner who has not yet received this honor. My ego does compel me to remind you it’s not bad thing if you decide to vote for me. I certainly won’t hold it against you.
Since we are talking Marine blogs other than mine(what?). I’m going to throw a couple of young leathernecks under the bus and let you know who has recently dipped the toe of their combat boot into the shark infested waters of the blogosphere.
You may recall SSgt Hensley? He has started his own blog here. Check it out if you are partial to knuckle dragging awesome. Yes Virginia, there is such a thing as monsters and Grendel is stalking evil doers in a neighborhood near you.
One of my young Sergeants has also recently taken a turn at some blog action here. Currently he is ruminating on the combat mindset. Just a heads up, he likes GUNS. Real shooty ones.
Oh yeah, if you intend to vote in the Milbloggies go here. Carry on with the plan of the day!
