Welcome to the seventh Bugle edition of 2016!

This month's issue showcases the many articles and images promoted to featured or A-class status in July; special congratulations go to KAVEBEAR on their first featured article and, in the same month, their first A-class medal! Hawkeye7 looks at two publications in our book review section this month, while TomStar81 continues his regular contributions covering World War I in our op-ed and timeline sections.

In other news, the MilHist FA, A-class, GA and peer reviews for April–June have been tallied. AustralianRupert and Nikkimaria headed the list, each with 28 reviews. You can find the names of everyone who contributed here, and we thank them all for their efforts.

Finally, voting for the XVI Coordinator Tranche will open in September. We will be looking to elect a dozen or so coordinators in total for the XVI tranche, which will take office in late September. All project members are encouraged to participate either by voting for coordinators or by running for one of the open positions in the upcoming XVI tranche. The project has two academy essays that may be of use to you: becoming a coordinator and advice from former coordinators. If you are still unclear about the position or the responsibilities, feel free to ask questions of the current coordinators, who will be happy to answer them.
