Doonesbury Creator Starts Military Blog

Garry Trudeau, creator of the comic strip "Doonesbury, has added "The Sandbox" to his blog. It is his version of a military blog. Trudeau has often been critical of the war in Iraq in his comic strip, but he wants others to have a chance at reading the unfiltered views of the servicemen themselves.

"This is GWOT-lit's forward position, offering those in-country a chance to share their experiences and reflections with the rest of us," Trudeau writes, using an acronym for the "Greater War on Terror."

Trudeau says he wants the public to see the every day happenings in the soldier's life, things they go through in deployment, and more. Many of these postings will have the link to that particular serviceman's blog.
