Interview With Blogging Soldier

This is from The Real Ugly American. I am sure you will enjoy it.

I am very happy to introduce the newest blog of the month T.F. BOGGS Tim Boggs is a 23 year old Sergeant in the Army reserves and is currently about half way through his second deployment to Iraq. He volunteered for his second tour.

He started his his blog last August and has some amazing posts. Like this interview with his fellow soldier SSG Newton. This is the first in a series of interviews Sergeant Boggs plans to conduct with the men in his unit. He calls it “Whos Fighting For You” . I can’t wait for the next one.

I highly recomend his post titled The Future of Iraq where he explains the children of Iraq will determine its fate in the end.

His latest post What We Do is also a must read. They are all must reads imo which is why he is the latest Blog of the Month.

Tim agreed to be interviewed for this post my questions and his answers are below. I hope you find his answers as interesting as I did. He has also agreed to answer a few questions from readers so if you have any questions for Sergeant Boggs please leave them in the comment section. Be sure to visit his blog often and keep Sergeant Boggs and his brothers at arms in your thoughts and prayers.

Here goes:

Where are you from originally?

I am originally from Columbus, Ohio. I am a die-hard

**editors note** No doubt a regular appearance on Hugh Hewitt’s show is in the making with that answer.

Whats your job in the Army?

I am currently in a transportation company. I am in a platoon that provides security for convoys as they deliver supplies to various bases in our area of operations.

What do you do when you are not working? Do you have things like a gym or basketball court, Soccer field etc?

In my free time I usually do one of four things. First I try to communicate as best I can with folks backhome whether it be through email, phone calls, or letters. Second I keep up with my blog and try and think up posts that will keep people coming back for more: which is in itself another job. When not doing those two things I work out in our gym each day that I am able to. Whether it involves lifting weights, running or playing ball I get up there to unwind. I spend the rest of my time reading and watching movies, mostly reading though.

Thanks for a great piece about an American Hero!

    I would like to ask, “What is the favorite thing the men and women like to receive?” I have a hard time trying to figure this out, and I have a limited amount of money. I want to make sure I get them what they want. :)
