The American military doesn’t only leads the world, they also rules the Internet in terms of quantity. Hundreds to thousands of blogs devoted to U.S troops, owned and maintained by service personnel themselves are the clear evidences of their dominance in the Internet.
These military oriented blogs are often related to the experiences of a U.S troop member as well as of husbands and wives who are patiently waiting for their spouses. Other blogs are kept by parents who are freely expressing their emotions while others are maintained by children who are yearning for the loving arms of their parents. For whoever keeps the blog – each purpose all comes down to expressing their thoughts, emotions of sadness and gladness and quiet pleas that are always shouting to the world.
Many military staff shares their stories of daily survival as well as disappointments to the US government. While others smugly bare their names and positions, some are doing their stuffs behind a pseudonym. Such blogs are also filled with photos with their families and the reality of living in a world of war.
On the other hand, parents, spouses and teens are all similar when it comes to a loved one that has been sent to a battle. The prayers of safety and keeping them alive can always be read in their blogs. For those who have lost, posting to their blogs is giving them relief and acceptance – thus opening another mean to say what they feel to a loved one who will never return.
To add more, there are also other online pages that support to the country’s veterans and active military. These pages are normally own by associations and other individuals who desire to be included in the virtual community of brave and loving warriors.
Indeed, the fast rising community of soldier bloggers is not just dominated by the men in uniform but also common individuals who have something to voice out. Whatever their reasons for blogging, every person simply tell the truth about life and hopes for world peace.
