• As a journalist for the better part of 20 years, I have had the opportunity to see some amazing things, do things others only dream about and talk to some very interesting people.


  • This wraps up my first week as under secretary of the Army. I cannot begin to tell you how good it is to be back with fellow Soldiers, their Families, and the Army team. Working alongside great leaders on talent management projects like Force of the Future and Soldier for Life, while ensuring we’re doing everything possible to keep our Families safe here at home, truly is a solemn responsibility.


  • Will you make a difference in someone else’s life today? We have all heard someone say, “Take care of your people and their families.” Have you ever stopped to think why we hear this so often?

  • Feeding America, Kentucky’s Heartland would like to say thank you for all the hard work and dedication that our wonderful volunteers showed us in 2015. Several organizations from Fort Knox have participated.

  • As a Soldier, I gave up a lot of things. I sacrificed more than I wanted to give up. One of these sacrifices was being away from my son.

  • Throughout our military careers, we often talk of being a volunteer force, a subset of our culture that has volunteered to serve our country in the profession of arms.

    The stump outside my house was the perfect place for chopping up earthworms. At least two feet in diameter, there was enough room across its ringed surface for me to sit and slice at the same time.

    Despite what one might think, I was and am a nonviolent person. But as a child, I believed that worm pieces regenerated. By cutting worms in half, I thought I was multiplying their population, thereby taking part in important zoological conservation work.

  • Republic of Georgia army Pfc. Vasil Kulijanishvili was patrolling the perimeter of Bagram Air Base, Afghanistan, with his unit Sept. 22, as one of 885 Georgian soldiers supporting NATO’s Operation Resolute Support when he was attacked and killed by Taliban militants.

  • We do it every year. We cut out recipes. We make lists. We go to the commissary. We elbow each other out of the way to grab turkeys, cranberries, yams, and mini-marshmallows. We jam enough food into our pantries to feed an Army . . . or Navy, as it were.

  • Those of us who serve here in Hawaii have a special opportunity. Each year on Dec. 7 our Navy joins with the National Park Service to host the key National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day ceremony.

  • Every parent harbors memories of special times with their children, and so we reminisce in an effort to keep our children young and think back to rites of passage, like the first day of kindergarten.
