  • Dr. Stewart recently published work stemming from his experiences as a soldier-geologist in the U.S. Army in Afghanistan.  During his time deployed there he began making connections between his training as a solider and his civilian training and expertise as a geologist.  In short, geological-reasoning training is a great opportunity to train the next-generation/thinking warfighter.  This paper was just published in the Journal of Military and Strategic Studies, Volume16, Issue 1, 2015
