Blogging about War

The Internet with its instant connectivity has changed many areas of our lives certainly affecting the media and how news is reported. The capabilities of blogging has expanded how news is reported and allowing average citizens to share their own experiences with family, classroom instructors, friends, and the world-at-large.

In a story reported by Brenda Schory in Sunday's Northwest Herald, Schory writes of Navy Lt. Carl Goforth and his blog, Desert Flier, click here.

Goforth shares his experiences in Iraq as a trauma nurse. As Schory stated, "his posts pull no punches."

Classroom instructors could use this blog in discussions regarding:
  • Political Science - the current political situation in Iraq
  • Nursing - perspectives in a battle zone
  • Communication Arts - journaling, communication discussions

Lt. Carl Goforth, we thank you for your efforts, and those of your comrades as well.
