  1. I’ve known Jon most of his life. He grew up with my boys. I am proud to say that he has evolved into a wonderful young man. I can attest to his being opinionated and narcissistic. Truthfully, he can be a downright P-I-A sometimes. but then again, can’t we all.
    I am as proud as an adopted mom can be.
    Keep up the good work Jon boy. God has blessed you with a wonderful gift of words.
    You inspire me.

    • Joe,

      • Jon,
        Thank you. I’m just starting to assemble the March edition and am targeting 3/30 as a pub date so let me know if you would like a copy. Will be including your article and link to your blog.
        Semper Fi,

  3. Noticed some grammar issues: ” I’m is also a writer of military science fiction with his.” Since the rest is in first person, I think you were going for “I am” and “my,” right? Feel free to delete this comment.

  4. I really like your series on what can be learned from war. Is there a series tag you’re using, or another way I can link to all the parts of the series (both to read and to share with others).
