About a year ago, midway through Mark's surge deployment, I started looking for blogs written by military dads. I found some great blogs but almost all were written by spouses or moms.
There were plenty of male war bloggers out there but they were all full of testosterone and politics. I wasn't interested in the surge-is-or-isn't-working conversations. I was looking for someone who got up every morning, looked at his watch and wondered what his son had done the night before.
I only found one written by Infantry Dad.
That was it. One.
We have followed each other's sons through very long deployments and thankfully both are home safe. It was nice to have someone to talk to.
This spring I found another blog written by Abnpoppa.
His son is also in the 82nd and in the same brigade as my son.
My question: Why aren't more dads writing?
