The Sandbox

#1
In summer 2006, Slate's partners at Doonesbury.com, Doonesbury creator G.B. Trudeau and editor David Stanford, launched a milblog called the Sandbox. Publishing dispatches from soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan, returning troops, and home-front wives and parents, the Sandbox very quickly became a home for some of the best war writing on the Web, or anywhere else. This week, we are publishing excerpts from a new collection, Doonesbury.com's The Sandbox: Dispatches From Troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, edited by David Stanford.

Today's excerpt begins with G.B. Trudeau's introduction to the book, which is followed by two entries: "Decency and Honor," by Capt. Benjamin Tupper, and "February 27," by "American Soldier."
