Chess, Loaded .45’s and the Korean Women’s Business Association.

Posted by:

I’d been doing some background on our negotiations with North Korea, comparing South Korea from the Vietnam War era to today. I just started a series at my political blog.

I was part of a corps-level exercise near the DMZ. It was in October, ’74, beginning two days after my youngest son was born in Zama, Japan. I picked up my mother at Haneda in Tokyo, took her to our quarters, kissed my wife, new baby and older son, then grabbed my gear, and went to catch ...

Lawyers in Foxholes

Some Army JAG out there is likely pissed.

In 2010 Maj Matt Goldstyn, a Special Forces officer killed an Afghani bomb-maker. He was stripped of his medals in 2011, retired, then after another investigation he was called back to active duty in 2018 just so he could be charged with premeditated murder.

In the morning sun, I could not believe my eyes.  There, in our little airport, sat a majestic P-51.  They said it ...

The First Lecture: First Principles of Being American (Updated)

Posted by:

“Can you tell me how many nations…in the History of the World…have sent armies, and sacrificed their men’s lives, to rescue the people of other countries?”

16-17 year-old kids are a tough room in any generation. That’s because every generation is different, so you never know what you’re going to get when you meet them as a group. They are often very smart but also skeptical about older people who try to tell things they don’t know, unless presented to them under special circumstances.

A classroom is one of ...
