Happy New Year!

Well, we made it through 2020. A little over 12 hours ago the page turned from 2020 to 2021. Here’s hoping that the new year will bring a little more normalcy, and happiness for everyone. Lord knows we can all use it after the past ten months or so.

I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy New Year. I hope you and your families are in good spirits and excellent health. Despite all of the uncertainty in the world right now, I’m cautiously optimistic about 2021.

As for the blog, I would like to thank everyone for taking the time to read the novel excerpts I posted in the second half of December, and for the feedback I’ve received. I’m looking forward to the upcoming release date and will keep everyone in the loop. This weekend it’s back to the war. D+15 will kick off with the Arabian Peninsula/Persian Gulf and we’ll go from there.

Again, Happy New Year to everyone! –Mike

    Mike, can’t wait to read the new stuff.
    It is always interesting and exciting to read the contributions, especially when the locations are on your doorstep.

    1. Thanks, Geert. Happy New Year to you, your family and everyone in Germany.
      Oh, that’s great to hear. Are there any particular locations I’ve mentioned that you’re familiar with? πŸ™‚


      1. Hello Mike. I live on the Danish border and the posts with the Baltic approaches are of course the most interesting for me. I have also been on active duty in the German Navy for 28 years. So I am a little familiar with the subject.πŸ˜‰

        1. That’s a beautiful area. I’ve explored around there a bit in the past on both sides of the border. Flensburg is a wonderful city. Wow, 28 years in the Marine?! You have seen some remarkable changes since your early days. I took part in a couple exercises involving Tornados from your naval air arm. Good pilots, and great friends. We enjoyed a few rowdy nights out with them πŸ™‚


          1. Hello Mike.Yes, it’s been a long time and it’s not over yet. I also started my service in Naval Aviation. But now both Naval Wings with jets are history.

            1. That’s too bad, Geert. The Tornado was a great aircraft. But I guess it was becoming a little too obsolete…and expensive to maintain.
