My name is Johnathan Beck. Since there are two people with the name of John on the wiki I decided to use my online alias, Nightshade. I have always been interested in military history in one form or another and enjoy visiting forts of all kinds, though I tend to specialize in forts with batteries that have either been built or upgraded during the Endicott period between 1880 and 1920 and World War II. Right now I am a student at Western Oregon University perusing an BS in computer science, specializing in systems management.
This is my first wiki that I am involved in.
