Next is Sgt. Snyder's "Why am I here?" essay contest for the guys and gals gettin' it done in Iraq. Contest submissions are being accepted until February 16, 2006 and the winner gets at least $250!

From the Will to ExistEnter the Why am I Here? essay contest for a chance to win $250.
The goal of this essay contest is to promote the American public’s awareness of the situation in Iraq and to help spread a better understanding of what it is like to be an American serviceperson serving in theater.

This contest has its genesis in the idea that this war will be won or lost based not on weapons or troop strength but based on public perception. Without the support of the American public, Iraq will not become free.

Trevor's written plenty of posts that could easily be entries in his own contest. Today's piece, You are reckless and wrong and you need to reconsider your worldview is a perfect example.
