Facts are that my current computer is old as the hills. If it works well today, that's a miracle in itself. If it isn't, it can take me at least three times longer just to do what I do. I'd like to correct that problem.

About

I'm a writer and a teacher, but formerly a Marine with two tours to Iraq. I write on a variety of topics dealing with helping others understand the nature warfare and insurgencies around the world to short stories about my life, military and science fiction.

Thank you for visiting my Patreon support page. I'm a teacher by profession, but I'm a writer by choice. I've been published online in Forbes, Gizmodo, Huffington Post, and Slate as well as written over two thousand posts, answers, articles, stories and other pieces. I focus on military based current events articles, essays, short stories, both science fiction and anecdotes meant to encourage, entertain or relieve the frustrations of my very weird life. I plug in a lot of my life experience into what I write, from being a Sergeant in the United States Marines with two tours to Iraq, to working at a Silicon Valley Start-up, small business owner, massive nerd, and getting married at 18 years old (still doing pretty well if I do say so myself). Currently, I am a teacher in my hometown and writing is just my late night obsession, which I want to see go further with your help

Being a writer in this world is getting harder and harder. I'd like to use your patronage to focus on my writing and be allowed to continue offering it for free. If anything, it would be great to finally justify all the time I spend trying to get the words out of my head and onto your screen.

A Quick Patreon Explanation:

This is an amazing place for artists of any genre. It is the perfect venue for independents who want to create unencumbered. This is simply the best idea out there for millions who just need help and support creating what they love and aren't trying to change the world, create a single massive project, or start a company. It just asks for very small donations each time an artist puts out a piece of work. I write, so every time I create an article which I've published or create a story which I want to share my Patreon supporters see it first. My fans, supporters, or people who I have helped make small donations which support every piece I create. If you've followed me this far, I ask that you please consider giving me a dollar (or however you much you like) per write-up that I upload. I will continue to bring you nothing but the absolute best of my writing. I will usually aim to release content twice a week. If you're concerned about going over your budget, there's an easy way to set a monthly maximum for yourself when you're entering your payment info.

Where your money goes:

Besides my projects, 20% of every month's pledges I get go back to other Patreon users and Kickstarter campaigns I'm passionate about, most notibly those created by and for military veterans. I want to foster creative communities for military members and support the good works they are doing. That means your pledges here also help support veteran supported projects, artists and entrepreneurs elsewhere.

In the near term, I hope to have a means to supply subscription fees for hard to find information not available in all outlets to keep my work fresh and unique. I will also need some writing software to help me take my work to the next level. Food would be nice, too. In the long term, I want to be able to keep my work free and still gain the growth of a writer that I want to be, perhaps even transitioning one day to full time work writing, thanks to tips, donations, and pledges from fans like you. I will continue writing whether you donate or not, so please don't feel obligated to give. My content may just be a better and more frequent if you do. Please don't donate anything if you're strapped for cash. Shares, promotes, pins, tweets and telling your friends can really help me reach new audiences, which is how independent artists like me make more money, anyway. 

My Rules on Linking to and Copying My Material:

I freely offer all of my writing to be shown anywhere where there is a need for it. All I ask is that the links to my home pages and Patreon page be preserved so that new fans can find and follow me.

I am only able to do what I do because of you guys, so whatever support you can give will be much appreciated. Thanks, sincerely. 

-Jon
