Location Minneapolis, Minnesota, United States
Introduction Sean Aqui is a pen name, derived from the Irish word for storyteller, "seanachie". I'm a 39-year-old married father of two, living in a suburb of the Twin Cities. In college I went through ROTC, graduating with a commission as a second lieutenant, Armor branch. I spent five months at Fort Knox, Ky., in the early 1990s, learning to operate M1 tanks. But the end of the Cold War meant a Reserve slot for me, and I started a civilian career in graphic design. I'm politically moderate, though I'm more liberal on social issues and more conservative on fiscal issues. I'm practically libertarian about civil liberties. I support a strong military, but believe it should be used judiciously. We should ask our men and women in uniform to risk their lives only for the most defensible reasons.
