War History Online

I joined Hive Media Group's Timera portfolio as a Writer in May 2021, and have since been promoted to Editor. One of the websites I contribute to is War History Online, which focuses on military events dating back from the Persian Gulf War. Other content posted to the site includes war- and military-related news, as well as other related content.

Along with writing and editing, I aid in War History Online's SEO and social media strategy, to promote the site's growth on search engines and other platforms.

The death toll might have risen even higher, if it hadn’t been for the bravery of Chief Warrant Officer Hugh Thompson Jr. and his helicopter crew.
