Ladies and Gentlemen,
From myself and everyone who helps out at The Texan Who Would Be King, we would like to extend its appreciation to friends of the blog. Over the last six months, there have been people kind enough and motivated enough to help share the story of White Platoon, Apache Troop. Their generosity has been able to give people from all over the world perspective on what goes on in one of the most dangerous places on the planet, and the men who live in it. Some of these people I have never even met in the real, yet they extend their friendship.
The first person to extend their friendship to me was an expat writer for the UN Dispatch Online, Una Moore. She maintains her own blog, Transitionland: Absurdities and Atrocities and spends a good deal of time devoted to improving the lives of Afghans everywhere.
Second, a toast to my friends at the Lagat Group, Lucien Ziegler and George Foulard. Lucien and George run a network of blogs including Arabianomics, an online publication to which I contribute.
Last but certainly not least, Michael Yon. He has recently embedded with 4-4 CAV and is illuminating the tale of my men and me to great heights. His online magazine has been around since the early days of Iraq, during which time he published a few particularly memorable photographs, not the least of which can be found here. His online magazine is definitely worth a read.
Thanks again to everybody, and I look forward to our continued friendship and partnership.
Always HE Heavy,
1LT Wm Treadway
