    Hi, I have not served my country in the military, Just a Tax payer.. I've always had an interest in military or Geo political subjects. I'm not one to accept what the News says although certain Journalists have my respect.....They're getting fewer and fewer though (probably my age is the problem).
    I'm interested in all kinds of History mainly Roman, Byzantine, Venetian, British, 20th century and so on....I've been to the Alamo too, so I know some Texan history as well. As a kid very much into the 2nd WW..Had a Granddad who was in the Maritime AA on liberty boats, Oil tankers etc helping man the Bofors guns. Had a Great granddad in the 1st WW who is buried in France at Abbeville, Most Brits have somebody buried over there. I'm the relative with the responsibility of answering a question from the rest of the family on anything and everything war related....and I try very hard to get it right and not indulge in silly stories

    Hi, Yeh it came through as I joined. Just didn't realise at first. Busy at work, so it took me over a week before I realised it was there.

    Hi all,

    I've been reading this board for about 2 years now, and have been meaning to make an account for about half of that. In truth, I can't see myself having too much to contribute, but there have been many occasions where I've had questions. Especially in the geopolitical topics.

    I thoroughly enjoy history and geopolitics, but as stated earlier, I don't think I'm enough of an expert on either to be a consistent contributer. I had about a year and a half gap between undergraduate school and medical school where I thought I would have the opportunity to read a lot of books on history, instead, halfway through my gap I've found myself engrossed in the A Song of Ice and Fire series and learning about the stock market/investing.

    I've greatly enjoyed reading this board through the election. It's been refreshing to read a message board that has a healthy population of people on both sides of the political spectrum that doesn't quickly devolve into a shouting match of political buzz-phrases. It's becoming increasingly rare to find groups of people with differing opinions that are willing to have a somewhat civil discussion with each other on the internet.
