I've been everywhere That was the title of a hit country-and-western song from the late 1950's, originally sung by Hank Snow, and made famous by Johnny Cash. I resemble that! My 26-year career in the Air Force took me to more than sixty nations on five continents - sometimes only for a few minutes, other times for as long as four years at a time. In all that travel, I also managed to find the perfect partner, help rear three children, earn more than 200 hours of college credit, write more than 3000 reports, papers, documents, pamphlets, and even a handful of novels, take about 10,000 photographs, and met a huge crowd of interesting people. I use this weblog and my personal website here to document my life, and discuss my views on subjects I find interesting.

American Soldier is approaching his 150,000th visitor, but may not be able to keep track of when that actually happens! Apparently he's at Fort Erwin, at the National Training Center, for a major exercise. He has posted some beautiful photos, so stop by, help his hit count, and enjoy the scenery. You might also say a prayer for the guys and gals exercising there. Fort Erwin is in the Mojave Desert, one of the most inhospitable places on the North American continent!
