I’m the staff historian at the Forest History Society. Much of my work focuses on all phases and operations of the U.S. Forest Service. In this context, I’m interested in examining its role supporting military operations and campaigns from World War I to the present, and also the work done by some of its employees for other government entities, such as working with the Department of Defense, USAID, and the CIA during the Vietnam War.
