When I first started my YouTube channel, the plan was to provide “teasers” on speeches as well as insight into each book. Well, that has evolved. So, what you’ll start seeing on my channel are recordings of speeches, albeit edited a bit as well as videos on specific topics.
I plan to add the videos frequently which may be recorded in a studio, in front of a live audience or in the privacy of my office. The content is going to be interesting and often shed fresh light on old topics, or cover topics of interest to those who have read my novels and those who don’t.
The focus is going to be on aviation, but I reserve the right to add a my two cents to a timely topic.
So stay tuned, and most of all SUBSCRIBE!!!

From the blog
Under the Articles of Confederation, the Continental Congress had no power to enforce any sort of copyright legislation, but it felt that it was an important enough issue that it passed a resolution that encouraged the states to pass their own copyright laws. Seven of the 13 did and used the language of the Statute of Anne as the basis of their copyright laws.
The above list provides common characteristic three, i.e., that for the first 58 years the United States was in existence, its leaders all shared a common experience – the trial known as the American Revolution and the difficulties in founding a country that violated all the accepted precedents of the time. Many risked their lives in combat and understood that if we lost, all would have been hung as traitors by the British.
Using the authority of the Military Peace Establishment Act, Jefferson reduced the size of the U.S. Army by about one-third to 3,289 officers and men. Its order of battle now consisted of two regiments of infantry, one of artillery and a company of engineers.
After Alexander Hamilton left office as the Secretary of the Treasury, Washington appointed him as the Inspector General of the U.S. Army. Believing that the relations with France would continue to deteriorate and lead to armed conflict, Hamilton introduced “a bill for establishing a military academy” in Congress to train officers. In addition to details on the curriculum, Hamilton recommended Fort Clinton, now the name of the fort at West Point, be the new school’s location.
