Yesterday’s “Doonesbury” comic mentioned that a military blog moved to Doonesbury.com as of yesterday.
“The Sandbox” blog features posts from soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. A character in Garry Trudeau’s Sunday strip says: “(I)f you support the troops — but haven’t a clue what they’re actually up to — you owe it to yourself to log onto ‘The Sandbox’! It’s YOUR war, America! Check it out or you-know-who wins!”
Trudeau has previously noted (http://www.editorandpublisher.com/eandp/search/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1003187180) that the blog will help the many Americans who don’t know anyone in the military get a better sense of the sacrifices soldiers are making.
During the past couple of years, “Doonesbury” has often focused on the B.D. character and his struggle to recover from losing a leg in Iraq.
“Doonesbury” appears in about 1,400 newspapers via Universal Press Syndicate.
