As recently mentioned, I entered an essay contest on Tom Ricks’ blog, The Best Defense – part of an effort to create a New America Foundation panel to get a better sense on the future of warfare.

Here’s my essay; here’s the collection of essays (27 total); here’s the contest announcement.

Today is your last chance to vote!

If you think my essay (Contest #27) merits selection – please send an email to Tom Ricks at with “Contest” in the subject line and write, “My top choice is number 27 and my second choice is number X.”

Thank you so much for your consideration!
