    You have a good blog. Although I’ve never been in the military like you, one would expect the military discipline to carry over to market.

    Saw that you’d logged into Debategraph in 2009. I was in Army Intelligence from 1968-71. Studied history in college. Using best available info to make decisions is what I learned from those experiences. I’ve been aggregating info and ideas to support growth of volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in Chicago and other areas for more than 30 years. I set up this debate graph as intro. As member of war college I hope you’ll appreciate the use of maps. http://debategraph.org/mentoring_kids_to_careers

    Hi Ken, This is Vince Martinelli, from your ILE class in 2005 at Monterey. I read the article in Army Times about your development of “Futrue Force.” Very impressive! Sounds like you’re doing really well and I was happy to see that you’re still making a big impact educating Army officers. Keep up the great work.

      Thanks Vince; its great to hear a voice from the past, particularly given as much fun as we had in the classroom 🙂 we were on to some of the weaknesses in the FCS program years ahead of the curve, and I look back at that semester with great fondness. Hope this finds you well!
