Milblog Conference 2007
Posted by: McQ on Friday, March 23, 2007

This last week I received an email from blogger John Noonan at Op-For (a great milblog that you should be reading if you're not) asking me if I'd be interested in being one of the "live bloggers" for the Milblog Conference in May. After looking at the agenda and list of participants, I cleared the decks and said, "yes, thank you". I'm both flattered and honored to have been asked.

Although QandO is not a milblog per se, we've joined up with many milblogs in the past on such things as Project Hero, the outing of the fraud Jesse Macbeth, supporting the troops and various items and topics pertaining to the military and Iraq. And of course, Dale and I are both military vets.

Anyway, to the point. If you're going to be in the Washington DC area on the 4th and 5th of May and are so inclined, you may want to register and come on down. Hit the link here and check it out. If not, tune in to the live blogging. I'll give you more details on it as they become available. Right now, it'll be me, Lorie Byrd from Whizbang and Mary Katherine Ham from Townhall performing the live blogging duties. Excellent company and ladies with whom I look forward to working. Yeah, I know ... tough duty.

Anyway, it sounds like a blast, and I'll have the opportunity to meet a bunch of folks I've admired and enjoyed reading for years. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Hmm... I might just go to meet the people behind some of my favorite blogs. Good to know that Bruce will be there, how about Dale? Are Blackfive, Jawa and Smash going to attend?
Written By: John
I think Smash will be there. I know Blackfive will be there. You ought to make it John. Dale most likely won’t be there because of workload and the travel involved. Don’t know about Jawa. Check out this page for a good list of who will be there.
McQ, GREAT to have you on board!
Thanks for the invitation, John. I owe you a drink.

Sounds good, Bruce. I’d like to shake Blackfive’s hand for the awesome book he put out recently. I just talked to my Dad and he’s interested in going as well. So add two more veterans, one of whom is also an old warhorse, to the mix. See ya’ll on the 5th!
