2007 Milblog Conference experience

My reflections of the 2006 Conference and pictures of 2007 Conference...

I am not quite sure just where to begin with my reflections of last year’s 2006 Milblog Conference. It was an experience that I would not trade for anything in the world.

The 2006 Milblog Conference was something that I was so looking forward to for months. I wanted so badly to be able to put faces with names or with blog names I should say. That day finally came and what a day/weekend we had. Words can’t explain it, you just had to be there. There were lots of tears and lots of laughter. We did not want it to end.

My highlight was to meet SSM, and a wonderful person she is. We had talked for hours and hours on the phone about our boys or should I say our “young men” prior to the conference, and we have not let up since then either.

Our first get together was at Walter Reed. It was raining, but it was awesome to see the look in those soldiers eyes as they crossed the street to join us.

Fran O’Brien’s was our second get together on Friday night, and the very first person that came up to me was AWTM, and her words were, I think “You are Keep My Soldier Safe”. Not sure why that has stuck with me for the past year, but it has. We immediately hit it off, and before I knew it I was getting to see pictures of the Collective.

Andi you are such a wonderful person who has to have lots of patients to be able to pull together these conferences. Thanks in advance Andi for all your hard work in making it happen. It will defiantly be another successful conference because of you.

To sum it up in one word AWESOME.

Unfortunately travel to DC isn't in the budget, or I'd love to go again. It was much easier when I lived in Va.

Have a great time for me, and post some pix.

I had everything go wrong that could go wrong and missed it but got there in time to see the last people leave. So I bar hopped with everyone. It was nice to see all those people.
