While I was at West Point I went to a briefing by the LTC who had come up with the idea for the First Earth Battalion. It was an intriguing concept, one that the Pentagon never bought into.
Then when I was in 10th Special Forces we ran the Trojan Warrior program. Both those experiences helped shape my idea for my two Psychic Warrior books. Taking warfare to the virtual plane.
