You may have seen the blog Wade’s World, written by the widow of a young Marine killed in Afghanistan. If you haven’t seen it, check it out. It’s a sad story and one that is all too common in the aftermath of the wars over there.
I originally went to the blog after a piece at Tom Ricks’ blog The Best Defense. A good blog with occasionally excellent pieces. Today Mr. Ricks posted a follow-up to his original piece in order to highlight the back and forth in the comments section. The comments include appearances by both Mrs. Wade, the wife and Mrs. Wade(?), the fallen Marine’s mother. A very good back and forth indeed.
