2011 Milbloggies!

For the second year the Camp of the Praetorians has been nominated for the Milblog Awards for best Marine blog. This a pretty cool honor and I’d like to thank Kanani for nominating me as well as Kristina who is also in the running for best Military Supporter.

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!

Semper Fidelis!

  1. Thanks alot for the plug First Sergeant. about that knuckle dragger… He has been keeping me entertained with Vietnam War stories and his experiences there, so dont hate on him too much. lol

  2. I love your sense of humor, and I can’t wait for the day I see you with the full Sam Elliot mustache. There is also the amazing recipe I got for brownies from coming here, and constant advice regarding the Zombie Apocalypse. Of course I’m coming back!
    Carry On!

  3. So kind of you to mention so many blogs… there are so many outstanding writers out there. I am most grateful for our freedom to be able to type our thoughts and share them so freely. For this, I thank all who have served our Nation…past, present and future.
    Great blog….you still have my vote!

  4. Grendel and Luke, don’t you two have work to do?

    Kristina, one day I’ll be out of the Corps and be wholly dedicated to the eradication of the zombie plague!

    Airman Mom, thanks! Figured I could spread some of the love around.
