Wednesday Hero

Update 5:15 PM: Just blown away with how powerful and loving the milblog community is. Supporting C.J. Grisham and the protecting future of milblogs has gone completely viral today because we bonded together for a common goal. I am blessed to call so many of these milbloggers friends!

For the complete list of blogs/website/ and MSM news participating or involved click here here and here.

Special thanks to my co-blogger and creator of Wednesday Hero from Hooah Wife & friends & his own blog, Right-Wing & Right Minded, Chris and Laughing Wolf for helping making this protest go viral.

This Weeks Post Was Suggested & Written By Laughing Wolf.


This week’s Wednesday Hero is both an individual, and a group. The group we honor are the milblogs: the military blogs, spouse blogs, and support blogs who bring you the news and information you can get nowhere else. The information and news that matter to you. The individual we honor today is C. J. Grisham.


Army Master Sgt. C. J. Grisham has always led from the front, from combat that earned him the Bronze Star with V device, to doing right by the men he led. His honesty won him readership and respect, from the White House on down. Yet, when he stood up for his children in school, his command did not stand by him. You can read more at Military Times to get the full story.

Please donate via PayPal; or you can log into PayPal on your own, go to the send money page, and put in his email: dj_chcknhawk AT yahoo DOT com; or, you can send donations directly to:

Grisham Legal Fund

Please write “Grisham Legal Fund” in the memo line if you use this option.

Milblogs have been a vital link in getting accurate news and information about the military, and military operations, to you. Today, many milblogs are gone and others are under attack from within and without. Today, you have the chance to imagine a world without milblogs, and to do something about it. Make your voice heard by writing your congressional representatives and others, and by making donations as you see fit.

The battle for freedom of speech and the marketplace of ideas is fought on many fronts and in many ways. Without your help, the battle may well be lost.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
