Liberator Bomb Bay Doors Opening NOW!
Welcome to the Fight
I coudn't sleep, and woke at 3:14 am on March 10, 2022. My time in northern Virginia was coming to a close fast, and I was mostly packed up getting ready to put wheels to the pavement and head to Texas the following day. Davy Crockett's quote came to mind, and I'm not sure why. But I'm inviting you to go with me, for my adventure is just beginning.
And I was excited to head through Tennessee on my way to The Lone Star State.
The Constitution bonds us as military officers to the citizens of our Nation (including "military spouses,") as it is their Constitution, too. The problem is, when's the last time you, or they, read it closely?
The United States Constitution’s 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 14th Amendments provide the constitutional basis for the most extensive protections of rights that protect citizens from governmental power.
There will be no retirement ceremony for me. Those are a legacy of the past now. There's no Liberty in it.
The words we're choosing to use around this "transition" topic are holding many, dare I say most, back.
I'm not retired...but inspired.
My Oath to the Constitution is the catalyst of the inspiration.
I'm holding a Liberty Celebration Event on my last day of Active Duty (Friday, September 30, 2022) and it'll go well into the night on my first day of Liberty, October 1, 2022. You're invited to join me then, and now until then as I keep on challenging the status quo by building something new...something great! I invite you to become a part of that.
I can't change the old, and won't try to. The bureaucracy and red tape is entrenched...it'll die under its own weight soon enough. Will you die with it? Or will you live free, and enjoy the Liberty the Constitution grants us all?
I'm focusing my entire effort on building the new, and invite you to get on this flight early. Doing so will give you bragging rights later as an early contributor to the movement, so to speak.
Immediatly after reading my retirement orders at 2359 hours CST on September 30, I'll take my Citizens Oath to Liberty at midnight CST on October 1, in front of all the world to see, streamed online and kept there to encourage others.
Citizens will be invited to say it with me, and more information on this Oath I've drafted will come out on Independence Day.
Ready Room Briefing for the Knowledge Bombs InfoLetter
As a #military #servicemember or #militaryspouse, you've likely heard of "TAPs"...the government's solution that "transitions" you and your family out of military service. If you're already #transitioningmiltiary or in the midst of #militarytransition, you've been met by the ambush already, and know the truth and who the enemy really is.
What's that old saying...truth is the first casualty of war. It's as true during what I've coined the Transition Battle of "military transition" for Armed Forces Families as it ever was throughout the history of warfare between nations!
Sun Szu's "The Art of War" came to mind as I neared my "transition" a few years ago, and has been top of mind as I finish up my final months on Active Duty as a U.S. Navy Commander (O5 paygrade).
A Substack newsletter has been going with a similar name for nearly two years, KnowledgeBombs for Military Transition.
There's quite a bit of content there already. I'm transferring that content to LinkedIn for easier access to you, but I invite you to that free content if you'd like to get up to speed faster.
There are dozens of topics I wished I'd been better equipped with prior to the "end of my military career," and well over half of them would have been useful 15 years ago...for both me and my better half. I'm certain they'll benefit you, right now.
The aim of this newsletter series (we call it an InfoLetter) is to change the narrative around "military transition." Because it's not a matter of transition being for later. Deployment readiness, at its very core, is "transition readiness."
And the military, it doesn't transition...people do.
In fact, it's not transition that the challenge, but the transformation that's required.
It's Your Transformation, too. And you've got to be ready...both servicemember and spouse. It's a team fight. And a navigator can assist you in transiting these dangerous skies.
Flight Pattern & Way Points
This InfoLetter series covers many topics, applying the skillsets of operational planning and logisitcs management to the individual Armed Forces Family unit. We approach "transition readiness" like we do "deployment readiness" through planning, preparations, and workups from the earliest days in service, equipping the family with optionality for later.
We'll highlight the topics from my book, Avoiding Each & Every Military Veteran's DIS-Advantage, and bring to the flightline in written form topics from the Liberty Accelerator JET Show podcast.
Matters we'll discuss include:
Jobs: the hyperfocus on getting a job to sustain the standard of living, whether that's after one obligation, or 30+ years of service to the Nation
Efforts and Energy going into our military service, and how much of that we're putting toward planning for far beyond it, with or without the family hero.
Taxes - traditionally a taboo topic, but it's one of the gravest domestic threats we're facing today, and you'll be equipped here to position against the blatant, and more dangerous hidden, taxes that are stripping the time right out of our lives.
Whole Health & Wellness matters as it pertains to full utilization of the military medical system, including preprations for that inevitable Veteran's Affairs Disability Compensation Exam (it's not disabilty, either).
Finding that identity beneath the ranks, weapons platform, and service branch, and beyond being a "military spouse" or military veteran. Because our spouses are married to us as individuals, not the military. And veteran's are more than their history with the military. This area focuses on your "Why" and equipping you to find it, today.
Wealth matters as it pertains to the efficient production of, and access to, goods and services in society. We'll get to the root of the price increases, and equip the servicemember, spouse, and/or military veteran family with the knowledge and resources required to escape inflation, and get your freedom back. Financial Literacy & Money Aptitude are key. Check out my #leprechaun series on Money Madness throughout March. Search the # for it.
Relationships as it pertains to "networking" for a new job. See my leadership article on DoD Reads to get started on this topic!
You're the Pilot! Pre-Flight Checks Are Next
Let me know where you'd care to begin in the comments of this post, and where you'd care to go in the series. But strap in tight for the truth...it's the first casualty of war...and "military transiton" is a brutal Warfront. Ever noticed the center of the word "believe?" LIE: Limited Ideas Entertained. There are many flying around us, like MIGs in a dogfight. I'll point them out to you in the weeks and months ahead...and we'll shoot them down.
I invite you to sign up for this InfoLetter today, right here on LinkedIn. It will be time well spent. I guarantee it.
To Your Liberty,
Demystifying the pain most experience during separation/retirement! Transition isn't a game. Learn more Thurs 1600 EST at 𝐋𝐢𝐛𝐞𝐫𝐭y Power Hour! True Family guidance for transformation, right now!!

Will you get ambushed by "military transition" and blame others for your lack of preparedness, or decide to tackle it alone as a Lone Ranger Rambo, and realize this is no action movie way too late? What about you, MilSpouse? I'm bringing much more of my content that exists off this platform right to your LinkedIn feed, because time is of the essence! This KnowledgeBombs InfoLetter comes straight from the Liberty Accelerator...an alternative option to the DoD TAP trap that's ambushing Armed Forces Families. hashtag#militarytransition and hashtag#transitioningmilitary are oxymorons. The hashtag#military doesn't transition, people do. And hashtag#militaryspouses aren't married to the institution, either. Change our words...transform our minds.
