It’s the only way I can go to war. I’m now a member of the 101st Fighting Keyboardists. Captain Ed of Captain’s Quarters, Frank J. of IMAO and Derek Brigham of Freedom Dogs are the organizers of this Company of bloggers who are strong supporters of the war on terror. They are recruiting those who are of like mind. I am definitely that. So far the Fighting KeeBees are a company with 66 members. May we soon be a Battalion. Then a Brigade. And on to a Division.

Captain Ed writes……..

That’s why Frank J of IMAO, Derek Brigham of Freedom Dogs, and I have decided to create — for real — the 101st Fighting Keyboardists and adopt the chicken hawk as our mascot. First of all, the term “fighting keyboardist” describes our efforts pretty well, and we think the pseudo-military terminology is pretty danged amusing. Derek himself designed the logo.

More from Captain Ed……..

Is that the same as military service? Of course not. The men and women of the military do the real fighting, and we salute them and support them by supporting their mission. Milbloggers give us the best of both worlds by not only defending our nation and fighting (and beating) terrorists around the globe, but also by reporting on the fight first hand.

There is honor in engaging in public debate for policies which we believe are in our nation’s best interest as well. For many of us, we know that without presenting our arguments in the national forum, many in the media and the public will quickly overpower the debate and threaten the policies we feel give us the best long-term opportunity to defeat terrorism and the states that fund and shelter them.

The 101st Fighting Keyboardists have adopted the chicken hawk as our mascot. And I think that’s very appropriate. To read more about the chicken hawk go read Captain Ed.
