Welcome to the blogosphere, General! Chief of Staff of the Army General Ray Odierno kicked off his blog yesterday in honor of Veterans Day. His topic of choice was why he chose to serve. Odierno said the inspiration came from his father’s service in the Army and his father-in-law and uncle’s service in the Navy.
Odierno also stateed he hopes to use the blog as a form of contact between himself and the troops. He encouraged soldiers to ask questions and share their experiences.
“If there are questions or issues that you’d like to hear from me on, feel free to let me know. I can’t promise that I’ll address your particular issue, but I can promise I’ll consider it.”
