Welcome to my site. My name is Jon Davis. I am a writer and blogger focusing on military, international defense, and veterans issues. I’m an honorably discharged United States Marine Corps veteran and veteran of Operation Iraqi Freedom. I became a writer while serving in the Middle East. I found the activity a productive way to escape from the tedium and stress of long deployments to Iraq and other trainings when the luxury was allowed. Though I left the Marines in 2008, I still focus on communicating what I know and my perspectives as my time in service greatly affected the way I write and what I write about today.
Besides writing semi-professionally, I am also a middle and high school teacher, small business owner, and publisher for education related articles, as well as tools for teachers. I’ve worked in retail and Silicon Valley Start-ups. I am also a graduate of the University of North Texas school of Business. So yeah, pretty broad spectrum of things going on.
My work has been featured in Newsweek, Forbes, Gizmodo and elsewhere. I’m is also currently engaged as a military science fiction with my first book, The Next Warrior, due out early this year.
