The Fighting Keebees...


Ed of Captain's Quarters has united with other affiliated bloggers to form a new civilian defense regiment,

... Frank J of IMAO, Derek Brigham of Freedom Dogs, and I have decided to create -- for real -- the 101st Fighting Keyboardists and adopt the chicken hawk as our mascot. First of all, the term "fighting keyboardist" describes our efforts pretty well, and we think the pseudo-military terminology is pretty danged amusing. Derek himself designed the logo.

And why the chicken hawk? When we looked into it, it turns out that the chicken hawk is a pretty impressive predator. It's the largest of its family. This species vigorously defends its territory, getting even more aggressive when the conditions get harshest. It adapts to all climates. Most impressively, it feeds on chickens, mice, and rats.

Make of that what you will.

To the list of prey, we'll add talking monkeys as My Sandmen have reported for duty with The Fighting Keebees.

I love the name "101st Fighting KeeBees".
Honors both the Army and Navy.

Thank you for that compliment. Anything I can offer to bestow honor on those so deserved, is the least I can give to them.

When Captain Ed announced this effort, the name just came to mind and seemed to fit so well, I wasn't sure I had actually originated it. Glad to see that it took hold.
