Team Room members, hello! I hope this post finds you well. I also hope that you are not too depressed, given the current state of the U.S. presidential election. That thing is killing me, but that’s a story for another day. I also fervently hope that you are, above all else, happy. That’s all we can ask for, right? You are put on this Earth for only so long, so make sure that you are making the best of it.

Where the hell has the time gone? I have been engaging in some shameless and self-centered navel-gazing here recently, and I realized that only about 19 months ago, I signed on the dotted line and began my career as a contributing editor for SOFREP. Ah, the halcyon days of the fall of 2014. That was back when Trump was but a twinkle in our collective eye, we were all atwitter at the release of a bunch of nude photos of Hollywood celebrities whose phones had been hacked (Jennifer Lawrence!), and we struggled to make sense of why one of the world’s funniest men—Robin Williams—would take his own life. The innocent days of aught-fourteen, lo, how we miss thee.

Since signing on with the SOFREP team, I have written 99 articles for the site. That is a lot of verbiage to have spilled in such a short time. This article, right here, this very article, is my 100th. What better way to celebrate than with you all, our most loyal readers?

I have tried hard over the course of the last year and a half to cover topics that I think will interest you. I, and the rest of the SOFREP team, value your opinion, and want to make sure that this is a place where you want to come to have fun, learn some new things, and interact with us and your fellow readers.
