Edit: By now my regular readers have all looked at this. First of all, I’m sorry for the lack of warning. I tried to write a some form of introduction for this and it just didn’t work.
I couldn’t come up with anything that didn’t just feel hollow against what Andy Olmstead wrote. Plus I felt anything I said would just take away from it. I’m still not sure that I feel qualified to comment on it at all other than to say that I think everyone who has anything resembling an opinion on this war should read it.
The military needs more leaders like him, and I’m sorry for what it took to bring his writing to my attention.
