Latest Article

The Idaho Statesman just posted my latest article at It's what I thought was a harmless little story about what we do with our 'non-mission' days.

Ironically, after all the other articles that I've written - most of which have gone completely unnoticed and most of which are about our missions, I've actually already started to receive some flak for this one. Apparently some of our less secure soldiers here feel that it will make 'everyone back home think all we do here is play video games.' I was a little miffed to be confronted about it by two meaty sergeants the first thing this morning, but, after getting in a yelling match with both of them, I'm starting to laugh it off. However, I also expect more to come and am (sadly) steadfastly prepared to defend the very simple truth of this tiny little story...
It is kind of comical that you are getting flak for this story. It sounds to me like your Sergeants need to get a life and play some more video games.

Perhaps your Sergeants should consider this quote:

The best executive is the one who has sense enough to pick good men to do what he wants done, and self-restraint to keep from meddling with them while they do it.

Theodore Roosevelt

Results matter,
