One of my favorite bookmarked blogs is Iraq Calling, written by "J" a solider in Iraq who also writes a nature-notebook blog Birding Baghdad.
After a year of service in Iraq, J is now in Kuwait and on his way back to the United States. It's fitting, I think, this happens just as Iraqis prepare for free elections.
I'd like to thank J and all who serve and all who have served.
In a post the other day, J wrote: "One day I hope to return, with binoculars but without a weapon." I hope he does too.
