Welcome aboard historian. Military brats do get an education being trucked around the world supporting the patriotic service of their father or mother. Baggage, spouse and children to follow on taking up your assignment - if quick with demanding an immediate turn over from the incumbent replaced. I am half Irish but 100 % Australian. Been there and can now relate to our Harp Heritage. They are of our DNA.

Welcome aboard. I regret I have never been able to travel outside of my country. But I live in a university town so we do have some connection to the greater world.

Hello Guys, i'm David, from France, ancient history buff, amateur military historian (yes, one more!). Also webmaster. I created around ww2 two websites, one making some authority on the topic or armoured warfare (tanks-encyclopedia.com) and one about sea warfare (naval-encyclopedia.com) that is growing steadily. But i have a much more ancient passion for ancient warfare. Here is currently my website: ancient-battles.com

Hello all new entrants to such a glorious blog. Travel is educative but no more so than any university town as we live in a virtual world. Which will still be there for you to see and visit on future happenstance. I too am an Hellenist of sorts, having just returned from my local Greek Club. Bon Soir Monsieur David, me hailing you from the 5 % of France within me - was De la Poer. Happy Halloween, first seen in San Diego in 1967.

Well not Greek by heritage, nor Italian, Polish nor any other European nation proximate. To have such a birth right in the US or Australia is a cliché these days. For immigrants all come from some where. Now what about American politics? Just read "Political Animal" on Gore Vidal by Heather Neilson - a quote of which I relate here in.

"The American people are not stupid, but have just been misinformed." (Eleanor Roosevelt). Her advice to GV when he was running for Congress in 1960, he lost).

It would be improper and precocious of me to criticise the current US administration for you, too, are a vibrant democracy, but would have no complaint if you look at our government from afar and with askance. The best thing which can be said is that the decision reflected the will of the people. There is only one thing worse than a change of government (if incumbent) and that is no change of government - like some mickey mouse countries whose leaders for life give grief to their ill-governed people.

Hullo
I have a deep apprehension for history, But i would never be so presumptuous as to call myself a 'Historian' ....."A novice learner of history would be a better description...
With that said, i am not a complete neophyte as i am a collector of Greek and Roman coins, ancient weaponry an artifacts and Mickey Mouse watches... A certain amount of knowledge comes with collecting.... coins in particular have allot to teach us about ourselves and our past,.. and the more i learn, the more i yearn to know more..
I seriously doubt i will have much input as i like to be sure that i am contributing something of worth before i put it out there....and from what i've read so far, it looks like i'm going to be a very small fish in this pond...lol
I am looking forward to delving in and absorbing what is freely offered here, and perhaps emerge a bit more scholarly myself....
