For you loyal Scoop Deck followers who feel the need to get muddy and fight the occasional land war, or if you just want to see what fun awaits you during your upcoming IA tour, Army Times has launched a new staff blog: Outside the Wire.
Here’s the mission, according to alpha-blogger and friend of Scoop Deck Mike Hoffman:
This blog is much more than a bunch of bureaucrats meeting inside the Beltway, though. We intend to cover everything from the new Multi-Cam uniform’s performance in Afghanistan to the best sights for your M-4 to Army leadership to the best way to get Copenhagen tins to a FOB. And everything in between.
We wish them well, especially with all that razor wire.
