The History Channel will be running a special on milbloggers beginning this Friday.  Check your local listings.

Band of Bloggers

Explore the impact of blogging as a new medium for immediate and raw information. In the midst of modern day combat examine the unfiltered and raw evolution of military blogs and bloggers. Listen as soldiers who during their recent Iraq deployments reflect on the important connection they had with their blogging and how the band of military bloggers has revolutionized the way we understand combat. Experience firsthand, unfiltered accounts of the pain, the hardship, and even the simple beauty found in Iraq; stories that often go unseen in the media’s coverage of the war.

Of course, as a primer you could read my AoIR paper on milblogging, take a look at the presentation slides, or listen to the presentation. 🙂
