I worked in Army Intelligence, mostly as an analyst, for almost 16 years before medically retiring last year. I am well acquainted with the academic English requirements for high school, the university and post graduate levels. I also have a deep love of English and American Literature, poetry, creative writing, the Performing Arts and Humanities.
