The Standard Introductory Post

The idea for this blog has been evolving in my mind for a few months now. Yet, each time that I sat down to begin it, I deleted it.

The title of the blog describes who I am. I am an Orthodox Roman Catholic loyal to the Holy See (Rome). I am an Intelligence Officer in the U.S. Army (Iraq). I am from the best part of this great country, the Midwest (Home).

I hope to assist anyone who wants to follow my upcoming deployment to Iraq with this blog. I will try to post weekly at a minimum, but I can make no guarantees. That is ultimately the primary purpose for its creation, at least initially. I hope I can make a small contribution in your understanding of the U.S. Military, Military Intelligence, how it operates, the War in Iraq, and the wider Global War on Terror.

My interests are far too broad to limit myself solely to Iraq and the War on Terror. This commentary will aim to provide insight on all things Catholic and on national events. I hope to keep this blog relatively free of partisan politics for at least as long as I am an Active Duty Military Officer. While those who know me, know my politics, and know that I do not hesitate to state my opinion; as an officer of the U.S. Army, I have no public politics.

You’ll also get baseball, football, entertainment, and just about anything else I deem interesting and worth noting. Though, I promise to strive for relevance to Rome, Iraq and Home.

Welcome to my blog and I will try not to bore you.


God Bless

Welcome to the blogging world, and thanks for linking to my blog. Maybe reading your posts will inspire me to get back on the wagon (I haven't been posting very much recently).

I personally expect expert commentary on the Cubs! The rest will be fun. Looking forward to it.
