It's not everyday that someone in our blog community places in a national blog competition. Today I discovered that Sarge Charlie is currently in second place for a MilBlogging award appropriately called the MilBloggies. The category is best blog by a military veteran. It only takes a moment to register and vote. You don't have to get involved in the site or even sign up for a newsletter.
Voting ends February 27, 2007 at 8pm EST.
Sarge and I may differ on politics but one thing's for sure; I respect and appreciate his service to our country. Whatever your take on this war and our present state of affairs militarily - and there are surely varying opinions in the blogosphere and elsewhere - in my opinion, it is always appropriate to honor a veteran.

By the way, did you know that Empress Bee of the High Sea (aka Muffin53) is Sarge's wife? I always enjoy her comments here at Mimi Writes. I know she is proud of the love of her life! They are such a cute couple. And she has given me some great advice lately on my own budding love life. Thanks, Bee.
Also, send a hearty congratulations to SGT DUB for placing in the higher ranks of this competition earlier in the week. Click over and give him a pat on the back. He brings daily news to us from Afghanistan and we appreciate it. They both deserve a thank you!
