Milblogs Go Silent For CJ

Photobucket

You may remember this post, where I posted about CJ from A Soldier’s Perspective and the grief he is getting from his children’s former school. What’s worse is that his command in Alabama did not back him up. Luckily, many prominent milblogs are, and a lot of them are going silent in solidarity with this highly decorated American hero:

On Wednesday 16 December, readers will have the chance to imagine a world without milblogs, and to do something about it. Those participating are urging their readers to contact their elected representatives in Congress, and to let their opinions be known to them and to other leaders in Washington.

Some milblogs will remain silent for several days; some just for the day. All have agreed to keep the post about the silence and C.J. at the top of their blogs until Friday 18 December.

The issues go beyond C.J., and deserve careful consideration and discussion. We hope that you will cover this event, and explore the issues that lie at the heart of the matter. Contact the milbloggers in your area or that you know, and hear the story that lies within.

A Partial List of Participating Blogs:

This Ain’t Hell
Boston Maggie
Blackfive
Miss Ladybug
Drunken Wisdom
Grim’s Hall
From My Position
CDR Salamander
Bouhammer

Today, you have the chance to imagine a world without milblogs, and to do something about it. Make your voice heard by writing your congressional representatives and others, and by making donations as you see fit. (H/T – Mr. Wolf from Blackfive)

Hopefully, this protest will raise awareness to CJ’s plight, and with any luck, the Army will start standing up for one of its own.

While I am not a milblogger, I am also participating in the day of silence in honor of CJ and every other milblogger out there. Thank you all for what you do.

Fred Notes: This post, Milblogs Go Silent For CJ, is taken, in it’s entirety, from my blog buddy Wyatt Earp at Support Your Local Gunfighter. I am a part time Milblogger, I blog about politics, police matters and military support, as well as a myriad of other topics, but I stand in full support of Wyatt Earp and Military Bloggers the world over!

    I am the wife of a Viet Nam vet that retired military 15yrs. ago, approx. and he works on base with the troops as a civilian contractor. I am also the mom-in-law of a Marine & a soldier at this time.

    I financially support by humble monthly donation, a 501c that Col. Antonio Monaco founded a couple of years ago.

    It’s offering is receiving Amazing reviews in healing PTSD, anger, and other emotional issues. This is so much so that the 82nd. Airborne reportedly has now requested and been sent 6,000 copies of the Multimedia CD called “Coping Strategies.” All at not one penny’s cost to anyone.

    Please read Col. Monaco’s letter at patriotoutreach.org and consider downloading for free and/or phoning and requesting your own gift of “Coping Strategies.” I don’t think I am exaggerating to call this CD a Christmas Miracle. People are being confidentially helped and healed, regaining their own self-control and peace of mind. The Airborne is not the only military command that has ordered by the thousands. THIS is the miracle.

    Merry Christmas and God bless each of you and please, after reading the colonel’s message if you see the value many others of us do in this, please help us get the word out about it.

    Sincerely,
    Karen T
