My name is Charles R. Babcock. I am a former US Army Intelligence Analyst and disabled veteran. I am currently pursuing a B.A. in History with a Minor in Religious Studies at George Mason University. This website serves as a consolidation of my work in history and in any other subjects that may interest me enough to write about. In the course of my studies and work, I am indebted to the extensive support of my wife. Her unwavering ability to listen to my constant ramblings about matters relating to politics, religion, history and sociological concerns (in an everchanging geopolitical climate) have been invaluable to me. I thank God for giving me the strength to persevere through the challenges that I am faced with in life and for the gift of my beautiful daughter. Angela and Clara, you are both the light of my life and the apple of my eye.
