Another book I need to write

The Dove and the Bayonet: The making of an American warrior

It would explore the psychological/learner orientation of Special Forces soldiers and how these interact with the training they go through to produce the types of warriors who are so adept at balancing the dove (peace-time mission which build relationships of trust) and the bayonet (war-time missions which protect those relationships). Special Forces soldiers are trained to wield both--sometimes at the same time.

Could be good, don't you think?

(Thanks so much for calling me this morning. I have had a smile on my face ever since. Even though I have gabillions of pages of reading to do, I feel like I can manage it because I know you love me and our boys!)
