Let me start by saying thank you for your 24 years of service.

I work for Central Command's Public Affairs department on an electronic media engagement team.

I try and find blogs have commentary on issues dealing with the war on terror. We engage them and in turn offer them valuable information on the War on Terror.

I am contacting you to see if you would be intrested in placing an link to Central Command's website on you site.

Please take a couple minutes and visit our website at We have recently updated our website with a new look and new features.

We offer up-to-date press releases, news features, photos and video from units in the field.

We can also offer you a weekly electronic newsletter that we can sent directly to your email.

If you think that it is something you and your readers would be intrested in let me know and we can set things up.

Thank you for your time and most importanly your service.
