So, I started a blog. 

Why did I start a blog?

Well, for the same reason I am writing a novel: because I have things to say, stories to tell, and because this blog offers a venue to do that. 

This blog, and the novel I’m writing, is focused on the idea that the wars we wage go on long after the warriors we send to fight them lay down their arms and come home. The events of history have a half-life measured in generations. 

I’ll use this blog as a place to share ideas, articles, memoirs, images and statistics to illustrate the lasting legacies of war. 

I hope you join me on this journey.
