"I feel like I might have to cheat on this one as well as yesterdays. Being an active duty soldier, my shoes are always shined. And being in a combat arms role, we're an incredibly tight nit group and very much mentorship oriented. I have a…"

I uploaded a couple photos from my phone with the intention of making one a profile pic. It seems that when I try to add a profile picture it wants to browse my computer for one. I'm sure I'm making this harder than it needs to be. I'm used to just clicking the "make this your profile pic" on Facebook. Also, can we "crop" a photo? Please help...that is, when you find the time. ps...really love the site, resources, etc. Keep doing, what your doing...it's appreciated!
I just wanted to thank you for everything you have been doing. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything you have done on the blog and your books. I appreciate that you have showed me that I really can become a "man" without turning on my values and being a pig. I do not have a male role model in my life, but the blog and community have guided me through many situations. Nice to know there are good people in the world still standing.
No, Thank you! I do public speaking engagements and am using "The Fighter" by S.E. Kiser tomorrow for one such engagement! Excited to use it and see how it goes over. I think it'll be great. I've finished the book and once I knock off a couple other books on my list, I'm going back to Manvotionals for a second go-around.
I've been following AoM for almost one year. I just wanted to congratulate with you and your wife for the good work you are doing. Your posts can help lots of men to find themselves and to re-define manliness.
In response to your comment from May of last year. (sorry, just getting back into commenting and building my profile up on here). I did my 2 years in Puebla (south of the D.F.) I was only there for 8 months until I broke my back while hiking and have spent the last 7 years learning to walk again. Crazy! But I up and going with just one cane now! I love how you served in TJ. I am from Temecula (north of Escondido) so I frequented TJ often throughout my adolescence!
"That is a tricky issue. I would guess that you were never addicted to begin with, but certainly may be wrong. Hard to know and risky to assume from a four sentence post. Sorry if I did get it wrong!
It is possible to do something for long periods…"
