About meOriginally from MN, born, raised, schooled. Helped in the Library during High School. Almost 11 years active duty in the Military, three deployments and some time in Europe and Central America. Now with Department of State and soon heading to Africa. I'm learning French, so I started with the French books on my coffeetable/workspace.

About my libraryLots of books (3500+). History, Society, Politics, and now loving Hard Case Crime
