This website is a collection of the personal writings of Lieutenant Colonel ML (Matt) Cavanaugh, PhD. Simply put, this is my best attempt to think through challenges in general before they emerge in specific. 

Interested parties can find my bio and current CV here, as well as more of my writings published elsewhere.

As always, all the content on this site, including all essays, are unofficial expressions of opinion; the views expressed are those of the author and not necessarily those of West Point, the Department of the Army, the Department of Defense, or any agency of the US government.
