Well, I finally am getting onto my Masters work. I filled out all the online forms yesterday and will be attending the online American Military University.
I was looking through my classes for my Masters program last nigh and I kept thinking WTF am I doing? Of course, my school district requires you to have a masters within 10 years of starting there and they pay for $7500 of it, so it's not all bad. I'll only be out of pocket a few thousand.
The Masters will be in Military History, but I can't decide on my concentration yet. I've got an option of four, Revolutionary War era (I do love this subject), Civil War era, WWII, and war since 1945 (of which I have first hand experience). So I'm torn between the first and the last. I've also thought about going the Political Science route or the Military Studies route with a concentration in Asymmetric Warfare, but I think I'm leaning away from that as I'll be a little more marketable to one of the local universities.
I'm sure a lot of that was just mumbo jumbo to some, but we know all types of people and backgrounds make up our hobby.
