I am very happy to say how proud and honored I am to have Bouhammer.com announced as one of Matt Burden’s Top 10 blogs he reads. In case you don’t know who Matt is, he is the founder of the largest milblog on the web, www.blackfive.net.

Matt is a regular guest on Fox News, in fact just this last week he was on the Glenn Beck show. Matt is also on the Board of Trustees at Soldier’s Angels, and is the Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Warrior Legacy Foundation. Last but not least, Matt is the author of The Blog of War: Front-Line Dispatches from Soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I consider Matt a good friend and even though we are friends I am still blown away by having this site named one of his top 10 blogs that he reads. He knows a lot of people in the blog world and his site, www.blackfive.net averages a very impressive daily readership in the tens of thousands.

In addition to the blogs listed in the link below Matt also had a few honorable mentions which did not get listed in the article. His honorable mentions are also all really good milblogs, most of which I have been a regular reader of:

Sorority Soldier is a female soldier in Iraq.  Her job as broadcast journalist allows to observe quite a bit of interesting situations in country.

Doc H’s International Adventure is written by a Navy doctor in Afghanistan who blogs about the trials and tribulations of training Afghans medical personnel.

Army of Dude was nominated two years in a row for Best Military Blog.  Alex Horton, it’s founder, did a tour in Iraq and is now back home writing about his memories of Iraq and commenting on current military actions.  I am a fan of his Military Movie Review Haiku.

Afghanistan My Last Tour is written by a senior Air Force sergeant embedded in an Afghan unit.  He writes of his life in Afghanistan teaching, training and mentoring.
