I'm cool, still alive and kicking. Got to ride on a CH-46 for the first time. Didn't even need a parachute. There is a lot I want to talk about, but I'm sure you all are farther ahead in the news cycle than I am.
However, there is a Rand study, Victory Has a Thousand Fathers, that is a free download.
Highly recommended reading. Especially the part about the number one indicator for failure/success of a COIN campaign.
