T.S. Allen

T.S. Allen is an officer in the United States Army. He graduated in 2014 from the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York where he studied military history and political science. He is currently studying corruption in the Vietnam War. The views expressed in his work are his own and do not reflect the position of the United States Military Academy, the Department of the Army, or the Department of Defense.
