MICHAEL MOFFETT is a professor, writer, and reserve Marine Corps infantry officer who served in Operation Desert Storm in 1991. He returned to active duty with the Marines following the 9/11 attacks, working as a Ground Operations Officer for General Tommy Franks at Central Command. LtCol Moffett came back to active duty again in 2010 to travel to Afghanistan to visit Marine Corps combat outposts as a field historian for Marine Corps University. The book FAHIM SPEAKS came about after LtCol Moffett met Hollywood actor and USMC interpreter Fahim Fazli in Afghanistan’s Helmand Province. A native Granite Stater, Professor Moffett teaches at New Hampshire Technical Institute (NHTI-Concord) and writes a column for the Weirs Times. When not in New Hampshire, he can often be found in southern California, where he undertook doctoral studies at the University of San Diego. He also enjoyed a successful appearance on the television show JEOPARDY in Los Angeles, wearing his Marine Corps dress blue uniform. Professor Moffett has two daughters, Katie and Kendra.
