"John Stryker" is the pseudonym for an aircraft mechanic in the U.S. Air Force. To prevent his jealous and wrathful employer from smiting him from on high for contrary opinions, Sgt. Stryker must regrettably keep his real name secret because he actually likes his job and would rather like to keep it. He is a Staff Sergeant with ten years of service to the Air Force, has traveled most of the world, and has spent a considerable amount of time in the Middle East and Japan. He currently resides in the Washington, DC area.

How did all this come about? Well, his wife got tired of him yelling at the TV one day, so in the spirit of domestic tranquility he set-up this weblog to air his personal views in a more quiet manner. Feel free to email him at the link provided whether you agree with him or not.

His wife would like to assure everyone that he's not this big an asshole in real life. Really.

He also realizes that it's creepy to talk about one's self in the third person.

This pretty much says it all:

War is an ugly thing but not the ugliest of things.

The decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth fighting for is much worse.

A man who has nothing for which he is willing to fight; nothing that he cares about more than his own safety is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.
