Bruce McQuain joined us once again for our weekly tribute to the troops. Before we got to SYSK, we talked briefly about politics first. It was last call for GatesGate on Pundit Review Radio, so we started there.

We also talked about social networks and some of the amazing things you can learn by following interesting people. One of those interesting people that I follow is Boston Maggie, a great blogger who is focused on Navy issues. This week at Boston Maggie, I learned that John Quincy Adams is tweeting about his 1809 trip to Russia, via his personal diaries and the Massachusetts Historical Society. I also learned that the remains of Captain Scott Speicher, who has been missing since the first Iraq war, have been found and returned home. Finally, Maggie had tons of great coverage of the christening of the USS Jason Dunham in Bath Maine. Dunham, a former SYSK subject in May 2006, was awarded the Medal of Honor for his amazing service and sacrifice for our nation.

BostonMaggie was listening and called in and spiced up the conversation greatly. It was entirely our pleasure.
