Surfing the On Demand channels on digital cable the other afternoon, I came across something unexpected: Good news from Afghanistan and Iraq. It comes in a series called My War Diary on the Military Channel.

I watched all of the episodes that were there, about five or six total. Some are shot by troops themselves, and they’re all narrated by troops. I don’t have much more to say than that, just that they’re very well done and if you happen to have cable On Demand or the equivalent satellite service, they’re worth checking out.
