I started this blog to have a place to post my thoughts and share these with whoever would care to read them. I intend to mostly write about philosophical topics and current events in politics, but I may occasionally post an article unrelated to either of these categories. I served four years in the Marine Corps infantry and am a veteran of the Afghanistan War, I’m a graduate of Purdue University where I majored in political science and minored in philosophy, husband and father of two, and I’m also an author! I just published my first novel His Name Was Zach, and have a separate blog by the same name on WordPress.

I chose the name Stoic Veteran because 1) I am a veteran and 2) I am a dedicated Stoic and a big fan of Marcus Aurelius and Epictetus.
