I started this site over eight years ago. Sketched it out on a napkin in a San Diego diner called Coffee Cup.

Jack Murphy and I were both writing for Military.com, but both of us wanted to stretch our editorial legs beyond what the staff would let us.

So I got to work getting the site coded on Word Press with the help of Cris our developer. He’s still with us! A few months later we had a site that was ready to go and about a month’s worth of articles to give us a content buffer.

I would go on to be the first Editor of the site while keeping my day job as a defense company executive until two things happened: I finally sold my book “The Red Circle” after being turned down by most publishers; and we landed our first large advertising campaign from USAA.
