I am very happy to say how proud and honored I am to have Bouhammer.com announced as one of Matt Burdenâ€™s Top 10 blogs he reads. In case you donâ€™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 Soldierâ€™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.
