The End of Regarding War

written by Matt Elliott
on December 28, 2010

We've come to the end of the Regarding War blog, which began (in its current form) this past July after we found this group of talented and generous military bloggers. I'd like to offer my sincere thanks for their contributions as well as the sacrifices they have made and the hard work they have put in to fight or report on the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

I'm proud of the content we produced over the past six months. It's invaluable to be able to read about the direct experiences of people who have seen war up close, both soldiers and embedded journalists. It's also important to hear from spouses and parents of soldiers, remembering that the military life takes a tremendous toll on loved ones back home.

It's easy to tune out news reports and ignore headlines of these seemingly endless conflicts; the American public has developed a case of "war fatigue" over the years and, as a result, the media produces less coverage of the wars. I hope this blog has made a few people think more deeply about the men and women fighting for our country, and how their sacrifice sets a course for their lives and those of their families.

Thanks for reading, and please leave comments, letting our bloggers know what you think of their work.
