Good writing: a soldierís last blog post

If you guys can create a fictional character as interesting and emotionally compelling as Major Andrew Olmsted was in real life, you should have no trouble getting published. Some of you might also find it interesting how often he quotes science fiction. Andrew and one other US soldier died on January 3, 2008 in an ambush in Diyala province Iraq.

This is his final post.

There’s some more information about him, and previous entries, here.
