Military Magazine Is Awesome!

I received a wonderful subscription from Tom. It is called Military Magazine. My first issue arrived and I love it. It is not only good every few pages, but the entire magazine is filled with touching and informative personal accounts from those who have served our country.

"Military is a monthly history publication written by the men and women who were there; in essence an oral account in print in the words of those who served. Unlike most military history chronicles, Military encourages the subscribers to become involved in what is published. Most of the articles are first-hand experiences of the subscribers during World War II, Korea, Viet-Nam, the Cold War and Gulf War; all U.S. military services."

Samples of some of the articles:

The Truth About John Kerry from Buzz Patterson and John O'Neill

A Marine’s life: CPL Aaron M. Lusk, USMC, Camp Lejeune, NC

The Battle of Bunker Hill as seen from Easy Medical Company (part one of three): Lt. Birney Dibble, M.D. (s.g., MC, USNR, 1st MarDiv, Korea), Eau Clarie, WI

There are several regular columnists:

Lt. Col. Oliver North USMC (Ret)

Thomas Sowell

Jack Kelly

Mark Steyn

Also which is very generous of them a person can Receive a Sample Copy of Military Magazine.

Hey Folks - this is a good, interesting and informative little monthly magazine. Just give them a call or use their website to order a sample issue. I have been getting the magazine for over ten years and have run across several articles of units I was with, people I knew and places I had been. Some of the stories are combat stories, many are not. Most are written by veterans who have never athored before. You can write an article about your military experience or that of a relative and send it in. It may get published.It is interesting to read about the experiences of people in other branches and completely different MOSs from yours. It is also fun to read about someone who went thru exactly the same things as you whether in WWII, the Cold War, Vietnam or Afghanistan.

Give the little Military Magazine a try and if you like it spread the word. To the best of my knowledge they do not advertize and it is only by word of mouth their readership grows. Word of warning - it is very right wing, conservative, patriotic and American oriented in it's commentary. If you hold ACLU membership,you probably won't like it, Heh, heh!!
