I was relayed this question from WulfeHound via Discord: regarding the NYMAS talk you'll be giving on September 22nd, will you actually be there in person? He mentioned that the talk last month that everything was done via Skype and/or phone calls

 

Not usually, they are as much as possible done in person. I will be there, and then in Connecticut the next day.

Are you going to create a discord like meathead has or just twitch stream occasionally?

Right. In an exercise of optimism over expectation, I have applied to apply to the Jedi Academy. If accepted in my application to apply, I travel to Fort Leavenworth in two weeks to learn how to apply (Army logic, don't lose too much sleep over it).

 

Good luck on this, I hear it's quite the program.

Not likely to do a Discord, though granted, it's mainly because I don't understand the point. Twitch streaming has been on hold the past two months due to an unGodly travel schedule. I have spent very little time at home since April. As it is, I'm only in the office this week, I'm on military leave next week, then back in the office for two days, then off to Ohio for the next five... Not much point in re-starting anything regular until my schedule settles down a little.

Tired as all heck. Army travel system isn't always the easiest to work with.  Got less than two hours sleep before my flight from Kansas city.

If you haven't caught it, I'm giving a talk in NYC the evening of the 22nd (Friday).

 

There is a capacity limit, so please click on the RSVP here if you're interested in showing up.

On the way to Ohio... Let's Battle Tour near Erie. At first the idea of a D-Day re-enactment inland seems a bit odd, but then again, they managed to put aircraft carriers on the lake, so getting an LCVP doesn't seem that unreasonable.

 

We are actually there Thu Fri and Sat, so if you can't make the big day, but can make one of the other two, it's worth dropping by.

Talking with a former 1SG today. 

 

I remember the first time I realized, as I was interviewing a new solider to my command, (date of birth in the 1990s) that the term of endearment for the CO. "The old man" was, in fact, quite literal...

 

Date of Birth of 2000 is now legal for enlistment....
