Happy 15th Anniversary To Us!

We began this journey 5 years ago on May 17, 2008 and have published most every day since then. There were a couple of missed days that first year. I hope we’ve lived up to the promise of that first post.

We currently stand at over 35,000 published articles. That’s an average of over six per day. Not too shabby.

    I wouldnt call “payed advertisement”, hidden as content, an article… So the true average of News articles is way lower

      We don’t take money for articles. You see those banners over to the side? That’s what we get paid for. We disclose on every article which mentions an advertiser that there are in fact, advertisers mentioned.

    Congratulations, Eric! You have certainly found and carved out an important niche of reporting and educating. It’s noteworthy that you have been able to span the highs to lows of military technology, while keeping it all relevant to the thinking soldier. And while also bringing in some really excellent opinion, perspectives, and history from important but often obscure guys from throughout industry and the Joint/Combined universe.
