Author: From the Executive Editor, Defense ARJ
We often receive comments about the articles published in the Defense ARJ, but rarely have we been afforded the opportunity to publish them. In July 2013 we published the article “Current Barriers to Successful Implementation of FIST Principles” by Brandon Keller and J. Robert Wirthlin (abstract and link below). We received critiques from Dan Ward, one of the sources that the authors cite in their article. After contacting the authors, we offered to publish Lt Col Ward’s critique along with a response from the original authors. Both parties agreed, and their letters are presented here.
