Hi, I’m John Lemay.
I recently retired after serving 25 years and 7 months in the United States Army. My career began at West Point and upon graduation I became an infantry officer. I fought two tours in Afghanistan and two tours in Iraq. I deeply regret not winning those wars. During my career I earned a masters of Peace Operations from George Mason University and a masters of Military Arts and Science from the Army’s School of Advanced Military Studies. This course uses The Art of War as a lens for me to examine my experiences in Afghanistan. The reason I create this course is to transmit the lesson of the Afghanistan War to current and future generations.
