I'm about to board a plane headed back to DC, but I wanted to quickly introduce -- with much excitement -- our newest member of the Military.com team.
Many of you know Jamie McIntyre from his days at CNN. He covered the military for the network for 16 years and was a CNN plank owner until recently when he left the network to get an advanced degree in journalism.
After months of back and forth we snagged him and just yesterday launched a cool new blog that he'll run called The Line of Departure where he'll bring to bear his vast experience and source base to analyze the current debate on defense and strategy and also delve into the issues that surround the military's relationship with the public and the media.
Be sure to bookmark our new site and stay tuned for more from Jamie throughout Military.com. We already crashed the site on Friday with his breaking news story about Cami McCormack's injury in Afghanistan, and that was before we officially launched the site. Clearly a sign of things to come from our new teammate.
