Thoughts on a Veteran's Day

On 9/11 our Nation Dialed 9-1-1

Category: Poetry

On 9/11 our nation dialed 9-1-1. I was at work as the terrible sights were unfolding in New York and Pennsylvania. I had been given orders to close our state office. I had to wait until one employee returned and wrote this poem while I was waiting.

Mission Transition: Navigating the Opportunities and Obstacles to Your Post-Military Career

Category: Books

Mission Transition is a practical guide for veterans in career transition, their families, and their prospective employers. It attempts to address this primary question: How can transitioning veterans realize their full potential by avoiding false starts and suboptimal career choices following active duty? The book has been endorsed by Generals, Astronauts, Super Bowl winners, War College professors, sitting and retired members of Congress, and best-selling authors. Almost all that have read it insist that it should be mandatory reading for those in the service and those that have recently departed the service. I’m confident that you will not find a better book on this topic in the market. I’m similarly confident that this effort will significantly improve the lives of veterans here and abroad if only we can expose them to its content.

In The Arena

Category: Books

Last night we sighted fifty-eight NVA. We couldn't tell how many we killed because the fog rolled in as we were shooting our mission. It was a scary night. When the fog rolls in, there is no visibility. Sentries can't even see one another from one end of the small bunker complex to the other end.... I am back and going out again! All patrols have been made six days long. Six days of absolute silence and constant vigilance... In addition, the NVA are putting out anti-recon units. We have been having a lot of teams shot out of their insert LZs.
