Netroots connect soldier to home
Representative James Smith (Richland Co.) is preparing to serve his country in Afghanistan – Operation Enduring Freedom – Joint Task Force Phoenix VI. He is a first class public servant, but more importantly he is true patriot. We pray for his safe return and thank him for his service on our behalf.
What makes this story even more interesting is that Representative Smith will be using a Blog to keep his family and constituents up to date on his experiences serving in Afghanistan. For all the talk about the new media and netroots playing a major role in politics; using a blog to keep in touch, in real time, from the battlefield is a wonderful use of this medium.
Check out his site. He is an excellent writer and we look forward to following his journey until he returns safely to South Carolina. God speed sir.
