New features…

January 30, 2007

Very soon A Soldier’s Mind will begin conducting interviews with Soldiers, Marines, Airmen, and Sailors.  These interviews will be conducted with the troops downrange, allowing us to hear directly from them what is going on and how they feel.  I hope to be conducted the first interview within the next few weeks.  Stick around for more details.

    I think this is a great idea, and will be a valuable source of input to the debate; excepting, however, if you choose to interview only those that support your thesis. Please capture both sides of the debate; otherwise, you will have merely sunk to the depths of your hated MSM.

    I realize you are under the assumption that this blog is slanted in order to distort the truth. I must assure you this is not true. Whenever anything is posted here it will include all the available facts. These posts and facts are up to debate and will never be censored, that you should already know.

    I will be conducting interviews with troops who are currently downrange. I however do not know who I will be interviewing. These interviews are set-up through a third party, so whoever is picked is who I interview.

    I want to cover these interviews fairly and try to get all sides of the opinions of the Service Members I interview. This is open to everyone, so please leave me a few comments on any questions you may like to have answered.

    Nephi, it would be very difficult, if not downright impossible to screen the people you’re interviewing downrange to see if they’re for or against the war, prior to interviewing them. One of the biggest reasons is the fact that all of their phone calls to the US are limited to 15 minutes. SNAFU just called last night from Iraq and believe me when I say that 15 minutes is not a whole lot of time, that added to the fact that there’s normally about a 3 second delay on the phones, so once you say something, you’ve got to wait about 3 seconds for them to hear you and respond. It makes the conversations rather difficult at times. I’m sure that Anthony will do his best to interview troops from all branches and with different opinions, but it’s almost impossible to pick and chose people due to the limited time allowed on the phones and the delays.

Got something to say?
