  • Very good article Chris about a timely and interesting topic. First of all, I salute you Mr. Doyal for your service and dedication and I thank Mrs. Doyal for her service, as well. I had the privilege, years ago, of working with some outstanding Warrant Officers. It is a grade that is difficult to achieve and is a position which is highly respected within the Army.

    The concept of warfighters communicating with their families on a daily basis is strange to most historians. The majority of our nation's wars have consisted mainly of battles fought in isolated places far from the homefront. Until the advent of satellite communications, the news from these wars came slowly to the anxious families at home. Now we see live broadcasts from the battlefields and soldiers can call and talk with their families while in the theater of war. We have certainly come a long way since Andrew Jackson won the Battle of New Orleans...after the war was over.
