About me: I am a prior infantry Marine, who earned the rank of Sergeant and a Combat Action Ribbon in 1997, and I love doing this newsletter/podcast each week.

For those who don’t know, I discuss military and defense news every Thursday, as well as some history, motivation, and wisdom. (And I do all of this from a moderate perspective, with a strong emphasis on trying to unite the country, since I believe our wide division is the greatest current threat that our country faces.) 

If you appreciate what I’m doing, please consider subscribing to help support and sustain the publication.

I strongly believe in the mission of this. Of trying to highlight what our military troops are doing around the world, and also in trying to unite this country. (Why I focus on foreign policy.)

I also believe the division in our country is the greatest threat this nation faces.

Every week, I try to address both of these issues.

Also, people are always asking me on social media how to best support my dreams, including getting out future books in some series they love sooner. Believe me, the best way to support me is by signing up for a paid subscription here. Or, you can sign up at Patreon or Venmo (@authorstanrmitchell).

Subsribing this way will also get you the Monday through Friday daily newsletter, called The View from the Front Extended.

Still want to know more? Here’s a bit more about the publication and my business history.

Also, I ALWAYS get asked about this: What are the details of your military career?

Each week, I cover the news in a sophisticated and balanced manner, with an over-arching goal to unify our country. Besides covering the news in a respectful way, I end each show with some motivation and wisdom. #SupportOurMilitary #DefendDemocracy
