Topic: Iraq War
I quite often am curious about my readers, so if I see one coming from an interesting domain, I am tempted to go to it, and look around.
Tonight I noticed I had a reader from http://www.jmu.edu/
Which turned out to be James Madison University cool.
I then found its online magazine Madison Online cooler still.
But THIS was the coolest of all
Operation Purple Pride
The views from the troops
If you're serving in Afghanistan or Iraq, you're making a special sacrifice, and that's news. Operation Purple Pride is the place to share your experiences with your classmates and the rest of the Madison community.
Whether you're interacting with the people of Iraq and Afghanistan, fighting insurgents, flying jets and helicopters, or supplying the troops from home, you have a story to tell. Operation Purple Pride welcomes personal diaries or journals, photos, quick news updates about you and other classmates, and background pieces that give context and understanding to what is shown on the news. Please share your special insights, those moments that make the sacrifice worth it, the triumphs and tragedies. News of your experience will enrich the Madison community.
Please email your queries, news, notes and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org.

If you are tired of information filtered by the Mainstream Media here are some first hand accounts from folks who did not get their information while spending most of their time in a hotel.
Thanks to my unknown friend from James Madison and if you drop back in and read this, give us a holler in the comments?
Let me know if "Purple Pride" gets its meaning from this?
