Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire.

      There are so many elements to Port Chicago, and then the munity at Mare later. Munitions is dangerous under the best of situations and ice done my share and never liked it. Amazing it didnt happen more often. You think of the force to all but vaporize a Libery and Victory ship to the point that a 40 ft bow section was the only discernable piece of either left…unreal.Report
