Another anonymous milblogger falls

Red2Alpha, a milblogger in Iraq, has hung up his laptop rather than betray his principles. Now that his command has made him "declare" his blog, he's quitting. He felt that to continue would be "untrue to [his] original intention of telling the truth as [he] sees it, of telling one Soldier's story in this war."
His experience is exactly why I choose to remain anonymous. I want to be able to keep telling things the way they are and I'm working hard to make sure that my opinions don't harm "good order and discipline."
