For the past six years, the folks over at Military.com have been supporting the growing military blogging community with the annual awarding of Milbloggies. Each year, the Milbloggies recognize military bloggers for their contributions to blogging, news and information and the military.
Last year, our readers voted Coast Guard Compass the 2011 Best U.S. Coast Guard Blog. We were fortunate enough to be nominated again this year alongside four other blogs about your favorite seagoing service.
We are pleased to have two blogs from junior officers passionate about their service. The American Queen is a relatively new blog dedicated to the legacy of Coast Guard Cutter Storis and the history of our cutter fleet from Lt. j.g. Galen Varon. Long-time blogger Lt. Ryan Erickson’s blog, RyanErickson.com, provides a more personal perspective on the Coast Guard, our culture and heritage.
