Some personal news: Today is my last day w/ @insidedefense. I'm pumped to head to @USNINews next month and continue covering the Navy & Marine Corps. It's bittersweet leaving colleagues who have become great friends, but I'm super excited to team up with @maeday22 & @samlagrone

For years public homophobia was socially acceptable and gay people were forced to live in the closet. I would like to take a moment to share some firsthand experience of what that meant in real terms.

Lol Benny Johnson is the worst human I have ever worked with, and I worked in publishing/ad sales with Conde Nast as a client before journalism.
Benny Johnson sounds like a great guy to work for. theverge.com/2022/4/20/23033…
