The point of this foray into the blogosphere is to give a better understanding of the Army to people that have little or no direct knowledge. I’m trying hard to translate from the jargon to plain English.
Comments are especially welcome. They feed my vanity. I have no hard and fast rules on what may or may not be said in comments. You are free to disagree, but please try to be polite, if not respectful. If, in my sole judgment, your comment is over the line, I may edit or delete your comment. I will not do this to crush your right to dissent, but to maintain an atmosphere where discussion does not become mere rancor.
