April 8th, 2010 Posted in The SandGram v1.0

I want to congratulate all the winners of this years MilBlog contest!! Thanks for all the folks who took the time to sign up and vote too! I think we had more people vote than I can remember in a long time.   Also, a big hats off to JP for taking care of the site with the constant updates and info on the contest and USAA and General Electric for sponsoring this year’s event.   It was a close contest between the 1stSgt at Castra Praetoria and myself, going back and forth a few votes here and there. I was very happy to see him win this year as he is truly a gifted writer!  I love milblogs for the variety and richness they bring to the masses.  There are so many talented guys and gals out there whose experience in the war and daily life will be captured for their children and grandchildren to re-live through the years.  I hope that my site will be around for my children to read one day to their kiddo’s. 

Semper Fi,
