It’s a new year…
December 31, 2006
Welcome to 2007, well not quite yet. I will be heading out soon and will be in no condition to write tomorrow. I will start the new year off with a quote.
War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things. The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth war is much worse. The person who has nothing for which he is willing to fight, nothing which is more important than his own personal safety, is a miserable creature and has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
-John Stuart Mill
I started this blog in February of 2006 after coming to the realization that I could not remember any of my accomplishments from 2005. It has been a very successful year for ASM and I hope to have another successful year in 2007. I would like to thank all of my loyal readers and also thank those who randomly drop by to leave a note.
In order to keep ASM moving in a forward direction I feel it is necessary to make a few changes. The first of which was to change the look and feel of the blog. I am very pleased with this change and it seems you are as well. The other change coming very soon is the addition of other authors on the blog. I am still searching for motivated Soldiers, Airmen, Marines, and Sailors who would like to author articles for ASM. I feel that with additional authors this site will be kept updated more often with more timely articles.
Again, thank you for all your support and Happy New Year!
