What is a Blog?

What is a blog?

A Weblog, which is usually shortened to blog, is a website where regular entries are made (such as in a journal or diary) and presented in reverse chronological order.  Blogs often offer commentary or news on a particular subject, such as technology, politics, or local news; some function as more personal online diaries.  A typical blog combines text, images, and links to other blogs, web pages, and other media related to its topic.  Most blogs are primarily textual although many focus on photographs, videos, or audio.

Some blogs are very focused on the personal writing of the author.  Others take an editorial approach, as editors search the Web looking for interesting content.  On their blogs, they may then write up a short comment and link to this content.  Others use blogs as a collaborative tool among a defined group of people who work together on a specific product or issue.  Read more about blogs on

Another form of blogging is the microblog.  As its name suggests, microblogging is simply writing extremely short blog posts in the vein of text messaging.  The messages can either be viewed by anyone or by a restricted group that is chosen by the user.

2010 AUSA Family Forum IV- Survivor Outreach Services
Posted: Wednesday, November 03, 2010
Category: Survivor Outreach Updates

What would you ask the Army Chief of Staff if you had a chance to ask him anything you wanted too?

At Family Forum IV the Survivors in attendance had that chance. Some of them just wanted to tell their story and others had issues that they wanted him to be aware of. Here is a link to Gen Casey's speech at Family Forum IV

Here is a link to the pictures that were taken at Family Forum IV

The day started with a trip to Arlington National Cemetary and a wreath laying at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in memory of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice.  The wreath arrived late and MG Jones got stuck at the gate, both of those were not good signs. After the wreath laying the Survivor's were bussed to the convention center for Family Forum IV, some of the Survivor's chose to stay back to visit their loved ones- the bus came back to pick them up but not before they got soaking wet in a rainstorm.

Luckily, those were the only hickups we had. The Family Forum went very well and everybody got home safely.
