Nice time down in Tampa with a living legend

Major General James Livingston (USMC, ret) received the Medal of Honor for his service in Vietnam in 1968. He is now the head of Kronos Advisory, a strategic advisory firm XO'd by Michael Smith and headquartered in Charleston, South Carolina.  Kronos will soon announce my role as partner (stay tuned for the formal announcement). The firm has focused heavily on counter-terrorism and the irregular warfare space since its organization in 2011, and provides a lot of pro-bono support to members of Congress interested in terror-related issues. I will lead the firm's expansion into other areas of work, namely strategic assessments and and systems analyses for USG clients.

We three flew down to Tampa early this week for talks. Hadn't been at MacDill in a bit.  Got to see a few friends on the side while in town.

It was a real honor (no pun intended) to finally meet the general face to face and spend some quality time.  He's a very impressive individual (especially in meetings) and we share a lot of views. I look forward to collaborating with him and Mike in the future.

An honor to meet Gen. Livingston ... a pleasure to meet him and Michael S. Great catching up with you once again.
