For those that don't regularly check blogs, here's an interesting one for you.
Fire and Ice
It's the blog of WO-1 Michael Fay, USMCR who happens to be the "artist in residence" for the USMC. He does paintings and drawings of the Marines and such over in Iraq and Afghanistan. Posts stories too. It's some pretty good stuff, and it gives a different view. I won't link to images, 'cause I don't have my own host.
