Who is the Jolly Landsknecht?  I am a former Army Intelligence Officer (35D).  I have also been trained as an OPSEC officer, Force Protection Officer, credentialed Physical Security Inspector (H3), Emergency Manager, Extra class radio operator and did a stint in Afghanistan as an Anti-terrorism Officer among many, many other things.  A Libertarian at heart but a realist.  Not really an expert at anything but a student of all.  I try to be that rare breed, a polymath.
