The author of this blog is himself an on-again, off-again angry staff officer, who made the odd jump from enlisted infantry to engineer officer and is now meandering the warrens of Army doctrine, one dog-eared page at a time. Most often focused on historical events, national security, and occasional rants on Army doctrine. He can be found being cynical and jaded at the Twitter handle @pptsapper and writing at Point of Decision, as well as on Facebook and Instagram. He is a proud member of the Military Writers Guild, winning the Military Writer’s Guild award for most active member in 2015. His other key accomplishments include an intimate knowledge of far too many gins to be healthy, and having once live-tweeted the entire Star Wars saga.
