BBC article and my upcoming deployment
I spoke with the BBC correspondent, Stephen Evans, more than four years ago when he visited West Point.
So, I ask that those who write me to have patience; my internet connectivity will be limited for the next couple months at least. I will reply to each of you as I am able. In fact, next year (summer 12-spring 13) I plan on taking a sabbatical to write a book on ethics in war, so I will (finally) have time to focus, think and write, and I will re-read all the good ideas I've received over the years on this blog.
Here at the replacement center at Ft Benning, GA, I've already enjoyed great conversations with an Army lawyer and an Army doctor about moral decisionmaking. (The doc even shares my interest in exploring complexity theory and ethics.) Within 10 days, I'll be privileged to hear the stories, experiences, and perspectives of our soldiers who are engaged in the fight. I am blessed to have such opportunities, and I will do my best to use tleverage my experiences to contribute to the wider conversation on war and morality.
Yours in the search for Truth,
