The best way to get information and news about our soldiers on the front line of the war on terror is through what's called Miliblogs. Military personnel keeping weblogs. There has never ever been this level of access to soldiers in any war. One of the most recognized miliblogers is Blackfive. And he recently ran down his favorite miliblogs for our consumption. Pick one or two and read them every day.

Or you could just rely on the New York Times for war news. Oh wait, they still don't even believe we are at war. Nevemind.
