    ArticleRediscovering My Home in The Catholic Church

    On the first Sunday of February 2013, I took my first steps back into the Catholic Church. I was happy to see and hear everything was pretty much the same as when I had left.

    A few years ago, I was told in no uncertain terms that military service is simply another form of social welfare and that those of us in the military aren’t smart enough or qualified to do much else.

    ArticleHuman Interaction: A Catalyst for Peace

    To miss the plane for your first business trip on a new job is every professional’s nightmare. Two Dayquil, one fizzy cup of Airborne, some Echinacea and a daub of Tiger Balm later, I made my flight to San Francisco on the one-month anniversary of my employment.

    ArticleBeyond Boundaries: A Stranger’s Call, A TEDx,...

    When I answered a phone call from a complete stranger back in October, I had no idea that the Veteran-Civilian Dialogue (VCD) had spilled over into circles of academic research.   Yet, there it was - a phone call from Virginia Tech.  More specifically, it was a call from Eric Hodges, Marine Corps veteran, and PhD candidate... more...

    ArticleThose Cute Little Drones

    Did you happen to see 60 Minutes on Sunday, or perhaps some of the follow-up news reports? The buzz was all over the airways: Amazon’s Jeff Bezos unveiled to a seemingly startled CBS’s Charlie Rose (really, he had no idea?) that Amazon was experimenting with drone technology to reduce delivery time to customers. The... more...
