I've had quite a few specific areas of interest on Wikipedia since joining in 2006, but in general I work in 20th century military history, especially in areas that are either highly visible or undercovered and in need of improvement. I also do a lot of reviewing at all levels of article quality, and take the occasional photo.

"There's a great deal of talk about loyalty from the bottom to the top. Loyalty from the top down is even more necessary and is much less prevalent. One of the most frequently noted characteristics of great men who have remained great is loyalty to their subordinates."
George S Patton Signature.svg

US-O10 insignia.svg H. Norman Schwarzkopf, U.S. Army (1934–2012) — GA: 3/2013 — A: 4/2013

"You learn far more from negative leadership than from positive leadership. Because you learn how not to do it. And, therefore, you learn how to do it."
Norman Schwarzkopf signature.svg

US-O10 insignia.svg Arthur William Radford, U.S. Navy (1896–1973) — GA: 12/2012 — A: 01/2013 — FA: 03/2013

ADM Arthur Radford.JPG
"A decision is the action an executive must take when he has information so incomplete that the answer does not suggest itself."
Arthur W. Radford signiture.svg

US-O10 insignia.svg Moh rosette.gif David Monroe Shoup, U.S. Marine Corps (1904–1983) — GA: 04/2013 — A: 4/2013

“The galleries are full of critics. They play no ball. They fight no fights. They make no mistakes because they attempt nothing. Down in the arena are the doers. They make mistakes because they try many things. The man who makes no mistakes lacks boldness and the spirit of adventure. He is the one who never tries anything. He is the break in the wheel of progress."
Shoup signiture.svg

US-O8 insignia.svg Moh rosette.gif William Frishe Dean Sr., U.S. Army (1899–1981) — GA: 02/2011 — A: 11/2011

William F. Dean.jpg
"No man honestly can be ashamed of the Congressional Medal of Honor. For it and for the welcome given to me here at home in 1953, I'm humbly grateful. But I come close to shame when I think about the men who did better jobs- some who died doing them and did not get recognition. I wouldn't have awarded myself a wooden star for what I did as a commander."
