The following is a Bloggers' Roundtable chart for August-October July 2007 depicting the dates (month/day/year), military or civilian contact, and bloggers who have participated in conference calls or teleconferences sponsored by the U.S. Department of Defense. Most sessions were moderated by Charles "Jack" Holt with the Office of the Secretary of Defense's Public Affairs office, or Lt. Cdr. Brook DeWalt. Conference calls and teleconferences were conducted both from Iraq and the Pentagon.

Note that occasionally the transcriber had problems with inaudibility and some names were not clearly identified. At times, bloggers were present but did not participate in the Q&A part of the session.

Additionally, as located, blog postings are linked next to participants' names.

Also see Chart 1: February-July 2007; Chart 3: November-December 2007 and Chart 4: January-March 2008.
