Welcome to "an Army Linguist"! Over the course of the next few weeks/months I will be updating this blog with resources for all Army (and some DoD) linguists. It's a challenging and rewarding job to have as one of the limited amount of linguists the Army employs. For those of us located in maneuver units, such as major infantry divisions, it can be a daunting task for us linguists to maintain proficiency, get answers to our language-related questions, and even get paid.
Hopefully with the advent of my blog and my future spot in the Army Command Language Program Manager (CLPM) course in June I can help many linguists find their way in this maze of training and regulations...all the while learning a little bit more myself.
I'm looking forward to input, questions you may have that I can try to answer, and feedback on the blog to make it a better tool for linguists.
If you have questions, please feel free to visit the Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page.

This is NOT, I say again, NOT, an official Army sanctioned page. This is just me trying to help my fellow Soldiers out. Whatever my opinions are on here are not to be considered the opinions of the Army, or even considered as fact. I am fairly knowledgeable, but ultimately questions should be addressed to your career counselors, recruiters, etc.
