In awe of the uniform.

I went looking to see if anyone was comparing the reaction to Lt. Col. Alexander Vindman — the Democrats' witness — to Oliver North — the Republican's witness from the Reagan Era. And yes, I did find this, "What to wear? Republicans flag Vindman's sartorial choice/As military officers do, the Army lieutenant colonel testified in his dress uniform: a column in Roll Call."“Lt. Col. Vindman, I see you wearing your dress uniform,” said [Rep. Chris Stewart, R-Utah], who is himself a retired Air Forc...

Hunter S. Thompson’s Ballsy Job Application Letter (1958)

Image by RS79 , via Wikimedia Commons In 1958, Hunter S. Thompson applied for a job with the Vancouver Sun. He was fresh out of the Air Force and struggling to make a living in New York City, though from the tone of the letter you wouldn’t know it. People who are experts in such things say that good cover letters should match the employer’s needs with the applicant's abilities, should be tailored specifically to the job in question and should show some personality.

Nike's New Campaign Showcases Some Pretty Inspiring People (& No, They're Not Celebs)

The word "hero" gets thrown around a lot. This week alone, we've seen it used to describe the ass-kicking protagonist in a new action flick, a courier that delivered a colleague's quinoa bowl in 10 minutes flat, and an Instagram influencer's super-hydrating face serum. Don't get us wrong — all of the above definitely deserve major praise. But hero status? Let's reserve that title for real-life role models. As in, people using their strengths to inspire others and ignite change in the world. Tak...

A Civilian’s Primer on Military Rank and Insignia

If you’re a regular ol’ civilian like me, you might have a lot of respect for the military, but you don’t know much about military culture. For example, military ranking. Thanks to television, books, and movies, and simply absorbing stuff from the ether by living in America all of my life, I’d picked up a bit on how ranking works in the various branches of the armed forces. But my knowledge was pretty cursory. I could tell you that stars on a shoulder meant the person in uniform was a general o...
