Hi!

I just wanted to introduce myself. I'm brand new here. I just finished reading Atlas Shrugged last night, and did that book ever blow me away. I will never look at the world quite the same way again. I even have found my way of thinking changed in many ways, and I'm trying to encourage it in this way.

A bit about me: I'm 34, married, with a young son. I currently work for a defense contractor, but I'm looking to go back to school to help me take on new challenges. I'm a veteran of the US Navy (Corpsman for anyone familiar with what we are), and a writer.

I'm looking forward to getting to learn more about Objectivism and how I can apply it to my daily life!

Tom,

Tag. You're now the new guy. I held the title for a couple of days.

I recall the night I finished Atlas Shrugged, it was 3 days before I was married - Talk about a life changing week! (15 years and both women are still with me, Ayn Rand and Wife)

From your wording both sound like very positive changes, which is great.

Thanks for the welcome!

Welcome to the forum. What do you write about?

Mostly I do short stories, about whatever topic I happen to think about. I've also written two feature length screenplays. I'm currently outlining a novel about a retired soldier who leads an uprising against an extremely oppressive future US government.

I hear you there. My wife and I just celebrated 8 years together. I only wish I had read Atlas Shrugged when I first encountered it. I can only imagine where my life would have led. I'd still have the wife and kid though ;)

My brother is a Corpsman and I myself served in the Navy for 6 years.

Your brother is a great man! ;) What did you do in the Navy?

Why the hell did I call you Dan?

I was a IS (Intelligence Specialist). I was a IS1 a year ago but I got out to go to school.

I was wondering myself, but I was going to let you slide on that one :D

Cool. IS always sounded interesting, but I figured my mind made the job much cooler than it actually was.
