Greetings and Salutations...
Just a short note to say hello, and introduce myself.
My name's Edward Carpenter; call-sign is Carp, if you prefer that sort of thing. I'm a Marine Corps Major and a Foreign Area Officer, wrapping up 2 years in Indonesia and heading back to scenic Beaufort (Fightertown USA) this summer.
The son of a WWII Hump pilot, I started out as a Huey crew chief in the Army, then joined Uncle Sams Misguided Children as an officer, which has taken me to Japan, Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Bahrain, and a few points in between.
Soldiering's been my career, but along with reading, writing has always been a favorite hobby. With the advent of e-publishing through Amazon, I finally got around to releasing a short, fictional account set during the battle of Saipan in WWII.
Valerie Ormond suggested I join MWSA, and so here I is...
If you'd like to check out my story, it's available on Amazon for the Kindle at: http://amzn.to/z2qOUq and there's a video trailer here:
Great to be aboard MWSA, and looking forward to getting to know everyone better in the future.
