Silence on this Channel

I began blogging about my military career in 1997.

We didn’t call it blogging then. And the website was But I wrote anyway.

C.J. Grisham has been writing for 6 years at A Soldiers Perspective. Until his Chain of Command shut him down.

This isn’t about OpSec. This isn’t about a soldier conversing troop movements or activities.

This isn’t about a soldier in-country at all.

This is a state side soldier whose leadership chain failed him because they did not want to deal with the situation.

About giving a series of admittedly illegal orders to control a soldier and limit his freedom of speech, and the freedom of speech of his spouse.

Some milblogs will remain silent for several days; some just for the day.  All have agreed to keep the post about the silence and C.J. at the top of their blogs until Friday 18 December.

A Partial List of Participating Blogs:

    Army Master Sgt. C. J. Grisham has always led from the front, from combat that earned him the Bronze Star with V device, to doing right by the men he led. His honesty won him readership and respect, from the White House on down. Yet, when he stood up for his children in school, his command did not stand by him.

    Milblogs have been a vital link in getting accurate news and information about the military, and military operations, to you. Today, many milblogs are gone and others are under attack from within and without. Today, you have the chance to imagine a world without milblogs, and to do something about it. Make your voice heard by writing your congressional representatives and others, and by making donations as you see fit.

    Donations to Grishams Defense Fund can be sent to the below address
