Every week we feature wonderful writers from Military Writer's Society of America, so if you haven't been on or you haven't been contacted, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information about how you can be a guest.
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.
I realize there are some features people would like and some changes we will try to implement this summer. However, our primary goal has been to test the site and keep it running for several months before "tinkering" too much with the complex programming. I know some of you have great ideas and I do hope to add new features as time permits.
