Congrats to Nords

It's with great pleasure to announce that our one and only Nords has signed a deal to have his book, "The Military Guide", published. This project has been a labor of love for him over the last few years and he's donating all the proceeds to Military charities.

A big part of this book is drawn from interactions and experiences shared here in our community. That interaction won't stop just because the book will be going to print. Over the course of the next year he will be sharing his experience on this whole process here on the forums as sort of a "what did you do today" manner which should be both educational and fun to follow.

Stay tuned for more info from Nords himself...

Andy

Congratulations Nords! I'll bet this book will be a treasure trove for military folks, and based on our experience on the forum, very enjoyable to read.

Now I can say I virtually hobnob with a famous author......
