The Adventures of Mr. Superman and Mrs. S.

http://simplysteele.blogspot.com/

This Airman and his Mrs. have a love story that is nothing short of serendipitous. They fell in love fast and got married at the age of 19 while everyone around thought they were crazy. They hoped to start a family immediately but after losing three angel babies and receiving a diagnosis of HHT and endometriosis, the reality of no possible viable pregnancies hit hard. They have turned their hearts to adoption and are just hanging on awaiting the miracle of a baby to make their world complete. Mr. Superman has been in the United States Air Force for over two years and completed his first deployment to Afghanistan in March 2010. Their blog not only chronicles the ups and downs of the military but also gives incredibly honest insights into their lives. The ache for a baby, surviving and attempting to overcome the horror of a near fatal rape, and the not so pretty side of life most would rather keep swept under the rug, are unashamedly and bravely shared with the world. This incredible blog is not all dark clouds and rough seas though. This wonderful couple makes us laugh with their hilarious conversations and make our hearts smile at their extraordinary love. They are so grateful to be a part of the military family and fall more in love everyday.

Thank You. (Originally posted 11-11-11

The Unlikely Soldier

http://theunlikelysoldier.blogspot.com/

The story titled "The Final Word" tells what was going through the blogger's mind right after he signed the papers to enlist into the armed forces. We have all probably second guessed a decision we have made, but this is at a much greater risk. Your life will ultimately change forever, and you could possibly have to make the decision in split second to kill another human in order to save your life. Very compelling.

Battleland

http://battleland.blogs.time.com/

To most of us, military intelligence is a mystery. There are strong arguments for the clandestine nature of spies in combat: one divulged secret could put an entire nation at risk. Still, the government does disseminate some information about its practices, and seemingly every bit of that knowledge winds up on Battleland. A fleet of top-notched researchers and analysts that currently stands at fifteen helps to clarify Battleland's ability to nab more than its fair share of spy and military headlines.
