Two e-mails I recently received have shown me that blogging is a good thing for the Army. First off, I had one from a fellow Army Major, a staff officer at a higher headquarters that was going to be responsible for a new unit, the same type as mine. He was hoping that I could share some of our procedures with them. We are fairly new, but I will share what I do have. Secondly, I got an e-mail from a Navy
officer who was sending people to Afghanistan, and wanted me to talk with one of his people about some things.
How did these two manage to get the idea to contact me? They saw my blog, saw something relevant on it, and went to my profile where my e-mail link is available.
Did I say that blogging helps the Army? Maybe I should have said that blogging can help, at least in some small way, the whole military.
