In the first of an occasional series of essays written by people in the military, and posted on what are now popularly called "MilBlogs," we talk with Army Capt. Lee Kelley about his post, "Fire in the Night."

Capt. Kelley recently returned to the United States after a year stationed in the Iraqi city of Ramadi. His original blog, called Wordsmith at War, is no longer being updated — his new blog, Captain Kelley's Notebook, follows his life back in America and his conversations with former comrades-in-arms.
