  1. Excellent interviews Kim. Especially Gen. Raaen. He is incredibly lucid and sharp considering his advanced age. Has he revealed his secret of youthfulness?!

    A grammar tip (common mistake): You said “… the last surviving officer that landed…”. Humans should be respected with “who/whom.” IE: …surviving officer who landed…”

    Keep up the excellent work Kim!
