About Me

I’m a Chief Warrant Officer in the United States Army at the tail end of my military career. Within a few years I’ll be retiring and pursuing more personal interests.

“I am convinced there continues to exist a class of people who might be called “the learned public.” By learned I don’t mean credentialed. They are people who have chosen to educate themselves on the affairs of the day. These are not people who earn their living practicing foreign policy, but people who care, as individuals and as citizens, about relations between nations. Any resurrection of knowledgeable and civil discourse will be built on this learned public.”

George Friedman

Get in Touch

  The best way to reach me is on Telegram (@justinsloan). I frequently reply to DMs, so feel free to ask me anything or just say hello.

  If it’s a longer thing, or you’re just not a fan of social media, you can send me an email. I read 100% of emails but typically only reply on Sundays, so please be patient and I’ll get back with you soonest.

  I love meeting up with people in real life. So here’s a standing offer – if you ever find yourself in Honolulu and want to chat, I’ll buy you a coffee. I’m generally available most weekends and holidays. Drop me an email and include [Coffee] in the subject line, and we can work something out.
